We at Merito Group are passionate about our involvement in the community and encourage our employees to become involved in as many projects as possible. This May for example, we will be taking part in March of Dimes, a non profit that advocates  for policies benefiting mothers and babies and and campaign to radically improve the healthcare they receive among other things. If you would like to donate to Merito Group’s charity drive with March of Dimes, please click here. We also, are not alone in being a company partaking in community involvement.

Getting involved in the community is a great way for any organization to build relationships and boost visibility and brand awareness. Whether it’s by sponsoring or taking part in community programs, or by enabling employee volunteerism, companies that encourage involvement in the community stand out among their peers and see multiple benefits as a result, such as a happier workforce or a more loyal customer base.

Roughly 82% of U.S. consumers actually consider corporate social responsibility when deciding what services and products to buy and from where. Similarly, a survey of millennials’ work habits indicates that 86% of Generation Y workers greatly value their companies’ corporate social responsibility programs and would quit their jobs if those programs started to slip.

Forbes questioned six members of their Human Resources council on what benefits they saw in company involvement in their local communities, their responses will surprise you.
