CSR donation

Private sector with Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes

Corporate philanthropy is the act of a corporation or business promoting the welfare of others, generally through charitable donations of funds or time.

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities help businesses to improve their reputation and enhance their influence with customers, suppliers and networks. This can directly help Top Employers to attract, retain and engage employees, and to be an employer of choice.

CSR activities are best practices not only for their valuable social impact, but also because of the fulfilment it can bring to employees who take part in rewarding activities outside of their day jobs. It can be eye-opening to have direct contact with the (diverse) community the company serves, and such activities are also likely to have a positive impact on a company’s consumer and employer brand.

All stakeholders of a company are positively impacted by CSR practices. For a Top Employer, being actively involved in CSR can make a significant difference for clients, investors and shareholders, and of course, it supports being an employer of choice.
