Are you making an impact?
That’s the number of people that we’ve helped in the world at the time of writing this article.
Here at Careerists we are firm believers that being successful isn’t just about making money – it’s also about making a difference.
There isn’t a lack of money in the world; just inequitable distribution.
That’s why it’s important to give back to those in need.
I’ve really been wanting to write a bit about social responsibility for a while now, because it’s something we really live and breathe here at Careerists, and being socially responsible has helped our business in a number of ways.
The first way being socially responsible has helped us is by attracting talent into the business.
We get a lot of individuals applying for roles in our company, and something I’ve noticed is that most of them actually want to be part of something bigger.
They don’t just want a job that they go to 9-5 and get some experience so they can fill out their resume.
They want to actually add value to the world and change things.
There are so many people who want to give back to the world – they just don’t know how.
They want to help out with something, they want to make the world a better place, in their own way.
Everybody has something different to add – differently skills, different personal attributes, all of which are unique to the person, and these are all different ways they could add value and change the world.
The Second way giving back has helped our business is by helping us actually attract more clients.
When I tell them that the donation we make on their behalf will help provide nutritious food, clean water, education, and clothing to those who need it…you can see their faces light up.
Knowing that they’ve contributed in some form means something to people.
So how can you start giving back to the world?
There are a few ways you could do it – the way we’ve chosen to do it is to partner up with a company called B1G1.
B1G1 provides businesses a way to contribute to a variety of charitable organisations all around the world.
The best part? They actually keep you updated on the communities that you’ve helped.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to use them – you can give back in your own way.
It could be a small charity, or even something in your local community.
In this way, being socially responsible can really help your business thrive.
In doing so, you’re actually creating a positive brand perception, and this applies not only to business, but individuals as well.
When you find something you actually believe in, something to help the world, it becomes contagious.
You can get other people to believe in it too, and that’s how we change the world.
Until next time,
