4. HOW DO WE, THE ORGANISATION, BENEFIT FROM IT?
Build meaningful relationships
Sometimes, doing your work as part of a large team may make you feel like a cog in the wheel. You may not find meaning in your work. But if you can help your organization in its CSR efforts, you’ll build meaningful connections with your co-workers and organization.
Add value to your work life
Helping as part of a CSR initiative takes you away from your desk for a more hands-on immersion into your surroundings. This way, you’ll find meaning and value in your work life. If you’re simply working day in, day out without really contributing where you should, you’ll soon burn out or lose sight of why you started.
Express your gratitude
When you take, you have to give back. As human beings, we are takers in the food chain. But CSR efforts and initiatives are a way to give. This is our opportunity to express how grateful we are for what we receive from the environment and the society we live in.
Give back to society
Giving back to society by volunteering your time, effort and resources is truly a rewarding experience. As part of your work life, you can make a conscious effort to give back and contribute whenever you can.
Strengthen employee-organization relationships
As an employee, you’re more likely to stick around and feel like a part of your organization when you find your work-life enriching. Apart from what you love doing, CSR can truly bring you close to your roots, giving you a sense of belonging.
