Social Impact Consulting for Corporations

CSR. Community Affairs. Corporate Giving. Employee Engagement. Stakeholder Engagement. Whatever name you call it, it’s a mandatory part of being a business today. We’ll help you make your strategy work better, for everyone.

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) continues to increase in its importance to consumers, investors, and employees, regardless of industry, history, or size of the company. We’re here to help you build or adjust your plans to meet the needs of today, whether that’s employee engagement, thought leadership, positioning in the field, or community goodwill.

Our Expertise

Your company has a history of grant making and employee engagement, but it needs to be built out. We can help you assess your current work, identify where it can be more aligned with your business objectives, and then help you develop a business case for the plan’s widespread adoption.
Today’s environment requires corporations to advance public social responsibility efforts that feel right and authentic to leadership and employees. We can help you develop and launch new programs with specific goals and metrics.

Social responsibility can generate opportunities for improved public affairs and for executive engagement. We understand the balance companies navigate when considering corporate social responsibility and advancing business goals. There are numerous ways that your CSR strategies can be leveraged by your public affairs, community engagement, and executive positioning goals. We work with you to find the alignments that are authentic to your CSR goals and help you build the necessary internal systems and support to better maximize them.
