Benefits of a socially conscious business

Posted on Feb 2, 2017 by admin

Socially responsible business is becoming highly sought after by customers, staff and communities alike.

Building a socially responsible business helps to set your business apart from competitors, improves your reputation and, ultimately, ensures your business is acting in an ethical and moral manner.

Here are three key benefits of running a socially conscious business:

Attract the right staff and customers
Studies show an increasing amount of workers would like to work for a business that makes a social or environmental contribution. Prioritising social responsibility is one key way to communicate your business’ values and therefore attract talented staff who share similar values.

Customers are also demanding products and services from businesses with a high social conscience. Recent research found that 55 per cent of global online consumers across 60 countries say that they are willing to pay more for products and services provided by companies that are committed to positive social and environmental impact.

Improve your reputation
Socially conscious businesses are dedicated to minimising harm, promoting sustainability and giving back to communities, so it is no surprise these businesses develop a positive reputation. Generally, businesses that commit to and support a meaningful cause develop a better image in their community and are more likely to win over customers.

Build better partnerships
Collaborating with other socially responsible businesses is a great way to increase your business’ exposure and increase community involvement. In addition, teaming up with other businesses and charities helps to strengthen ties and work towards achieving social goals (especially where funds or resources may be limited).
