What social good programs does your business and staff practice daily? Recycling efforts, community volunteering, and other social good programming are all noble and necessary, but completely negated if you don't have your whole team on board. From C-level executives to part-timers, every team member should constantly be involved to maintain social good best management practices.
This isn't an original thought. It is, however and unfortunately, one that we need to keep reminding each other of on a daily basis. In business, it's easy to get caught up in maintaining budgets in an effort to be fiscally responsible, and then, in turn, to forget our fiduciary responsibilities to ourselves, our staff, our customers, and the world of tomorrow by not living healthier lifestyles, especially in the office.
We have to go beyond just setting out blue trash bins for cans and bottles. Instead, remind the entire staff in your regular meetings about the importance of cutting back on their use. You can't make your staff eat or live better, but you can keep reminding them with positive, encouraging processes.
Your staff, customers, prospects, and business partners will notice these social good changes and will feel better about working with you. These little things add to your business and marketing strategies and allow your business to grow. The ROI is hard to see, but that doesn't mean that it's not there.
