Community

We assist organisations and community in identifying collective vision, and engaging for purpose of building ongoing relationships that provide mutual benefit.

Many organisations’ employee engagement programs include community service.  Often the connection between the organisation’s purpose and that of the charity or community service is weak.  Our strength is in identifying business activities that impact on society, then engaging via appropriate activities.  This not only increases employee sense of purpose but also support and positive interest from community in the organisation. Our ultimate objective is to create shared value for both partners.

Our community activity includes:

  • Partnering organisations with community for mutual benefit
  • Corporate volunteering co-ordination
  • Assisting organisations to minimise environmental and community impact
  • Cultural awareness training
