Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a new concept in Iran. Therefore, companies should get familiar with the benefits of social responsibility for company and employees.
How Employees Benefit from Corporate Social Responsibility
In addition to benefiting companies from Corporate Social Responsibility, employees will also benefit from CSR.
1. Positive Workplace Environment
When corporations exhibit philanthropic behavior, they are more likely to provide employees with a positive workplace. Consequently, employees feel engaged and productive when they walk into work each day.
Instilling a strong culture of corporate social responsibility within every employee from the top down will help to create a positive and productive environment where employees can thrive.
Corporations that care about the lives of people outside the walls of their businesses are more likely to create a positive environment.
2. Increase in Creativity
Employees who know that their employer is committed to bettering the local and global communities feel a stronger connection to the company. Because of this close relationship that employees share with their company, workers feel more inclined to be productive and creative.
Employers have identified creativity as one of the most important leadership qualities that an employee can possess. Creative employees enjoy working for companies that they can believe in and stand behind.
By incorporating comprehensive philanthropic programs, companies can help employees become more productive and creative.
3. Encourages Professional & Personal Growth
When companies have a culture of corporate social responsibility, they can easily promote volunteerism to their employees and encourage them to donate to nonprofits.
When employees contribute their time and money to worthy causes, they develop professionally and personally.
By helping those in need and volunteering as teams, employees learn to work better together on important projects. Employees also experience a sense of pride when they know that they work for a company that cares about the community and encourages them to be passionate about worthy causes.
4. Promotes Individual Philanthropy
When employees notice that the company they work for is involved in charitable endeavors, they play follow the leader and begin to engage in their own philanthropic activities.
If a company encourages group volunteerism and matches donations to nonprofits with a matching gift program, an employee is more likely to take advantage of those programs and become more individually philanthropically minded.
Without the strong sense of CSR that a company should adopt, employees are less likely to branch out themselves and serve the community with monetary donations and volunteer efforts.
