Sustainable goals give back not only to the environment, but simultaneously profit your business. CEB reports that on average, every employee who participates in corporate community engagement activities adds $2,400 of value to the company. Everyone wins. We support socially conscious companies and we work with non-profits and corporations daily to create employee driven impact while creating a story the world is wanting to hear.
Here are a few examples of companies doing their part in the CSR world.
Through their Buy-A-Pair, Give-A-Pair program, Warby Parker makes a monthly donation to their nonprofit partners, such as VisionSpring, to bring prescription eyewear to people in developing countries.
They "tally up the number of glasses sold and make a monthly donation to our nonprofit partners, which covers the cost of sourcing that number of glasses."
The company has distributed more than one million pairs of glasses since its start in 2010.
Microsoft’s 2015 Employee Giving Campaign “raised a record-breaking $125 million for more than 18,000 nonprofits and schools across the globe."
