PCYC NSW, for more than 80 years has prided itself on its integrity and mission to improve communities right around NSW.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) refers to the moral and ethical obligations of an organisation to invest in philanthropic initiatives and give back to society. It stipulates a prerequisite that organisations do more than simply reap shareholder return; they are expected to contribute to the health and well-being of the community. Furthermore, it’s believed that CSR should be integrated throughout the organisation and practiced in its relationships. Ultimately, CSR is about seizing the opportunity to do good while doing business.
Doing good makes good business sense. Employee engagement is a key driver of corporate philanthropy.
High employee engagement is a goal shared by employers of choice as an indicator of an irresistible company culture; one that motivates greater productivity, lower turnover and attracts top talent.
Employee engagement is defined as the emotional commitment an employee has to an organisation and its goals. Engaged employees care more and, therefore, work harder, give better service and stay put. Engaged employees are reported to be 87 percent more likely to remain with an organisation.
Research continues to prove that engaged staff help businesses succeed. It’s easy to appreciate that employees who love working for you inspire happier customers who buy more and refer more, and therefore drive sales and profits higher, ultimately resulting in increased share value.
Employees are engaged when they are inspired. Although it would be nice to think that work alone is enough to inspire staff, it’s increasingly clear that inspiration comes from a culture of giving back to the community in a meaningful and measurable way.
