Corporate Culture and Philanthropy

corporate-culture-philanthropyBuilding a strong corporate culture is important. Prospective employees look at mission and vision statements to see if the culture is a fit for their future goals and lifestyle. It’s extremely important for employees to feel as if they have a purpose greater than being a number who punches the clock. They want to know when they walk in the door their efforts are appreciated and that they can grow. Even more so, they want to know the company they work for supports philanthropic efforts – supporting charities and the community

Philanthropy is one of the most important ways to contribute to a strong company culture. Giving back is something everyone can do together that makes everyone feel good about the common cause they support. Employees from all departments and executive leadership can work together side-by-side in volunteer positions to help build compatibility and trust between all levels of the organization. Donating time and resources to the community not only helps with employee recruitment and retention, but also help with building a strong reputation among consumers and other companies in which you may do business with. What could be better than to demonstrate your company cares about the greater good?

Each member of your organization must own the culture and be champions of the goal at hand. By standing strong with the community and volunteer organizations around you, you will be able to foster great relationships that will have rewards beyond monetary measures. The whole organization will learn to work together as a whole on projects outside of the office that can translate to the workplace leading to better communication and processes that will help the company grow and find greater success during the work day.

If your company doesn’t currently take part in any philanthropic efforts, it’s not too late. Take steps towards volunteering time and resources to build a relationship with the organization and give back to the community in which you do business. Slowly, but surely you will see a change within the spirit of your company.
