There are many plus points to a business partnering up with a local charity. If you’ve not done this yet, perhaps it’s time you found the ideal charity for you and started doing some good deeds!
Making a good impression isn’t all about having fancy glass top office furniture and hitting sales targets, it’s about many other things too. When you help out a local charity, not only are you doing a good deed and banking your karma points, but you’re also showing the local community and further afield that you’re a business that cares. People like businesses that care!
It might a little underhanded, but provided you choose a charity which you care about as a business, there is no harm whatsoever in doing good deeds and reaping the beneficial side effects for your business. Many businesses become involved with local endeavours, or even larger charities which have a personal connection, perhaps with someone who is working there. This helps to boost morale, increases the number of ideas you’ll find coming from around the office bench desks, does something wonderful for those in need and also makes a fantastic impression on anyone thinking of doing business with you, or entering your building and sitting on your reception chairs.
At the end of the day, doing good is never a bad thing!
