2313 Inc How Social Responsibility Encourages Employees and Improves Public Relations

Social Responsibility inspires employees to do their best on the job and contribute to the wellbeing of the community.

Improving society is a core value of many companies doing business today. CEOs and employees have learned that a work culture committed to philanthropy also improves their bottom line. It’s true—social responsibility is good for business. Here’s how:

  • It improves public perception of the company, resulting in heightened company trust
  • It allows employees to gain a wider perspective of the world and understand how the skills they have gained can translate across many areas of their lives
  • It personifies the company into a force for change and good, not simply a for-profit endeavor
  • It gives the company a competitive edge in the market
  • It cultivates greater employee satisfaction and loyalty

Employees today have a greater opportunity to make a difference in their communities by finding volunteering opportunities at work. For example, 2313 Inc.’s support of Operation Smile allows the team to contribute to philanthropic causes and make a difference on a global scale. Our work with Operation Smile provides a positive example of social responsibility to our clients, employees, and business professionals.

Every employee has valuable skills to offer nonprofit organizations, from the ability to take photos at events, to making children laugh during medical missions, to organizing fundraisers. By offering their particular strengths and resources, employees can make a meaningful contribution to those in need.

A company’s public image can be swayed with of its social responsibility programs and how aware the public is about those programs. Anyone will usually say they feel more comfortable supporting a company that does its part to help with the community and support humanitarian work. It’s worth letting the public know about the great projects and charities you support. Companies can even improve their public image by supporting nonprofits through fundraisers, volunteering, and strong partnerships. By promoting these efforts and letting the public know about their support, companies increase their chances of becoming favorable in the eyes of consumers.

Anyone in the company can make a difference and contribute in his or her own way. If you’re interested in making a difference in the lives of people in need, start your search at work. You may find a program that will be happy to have your support.

Meaningful Ways to Handle Rejection

Rejection is a part of life — and is most certainly a part of business.
At 2313 Inc. we help prepare our team members to take rejection in stride and never let it keep them from hitting their goals.

2313 Inc.

Everyone gets rejected, but will you let rejection stop your career in its tracks, or will you turn it into an opportunity to grow

Rejection hurts. There is no way to avoid it. Your first step is to acknowledge the rejection–but don’t dwell on it. Convert that rejection into motivation. Here are some of 2313 Inc.’s favorite strategies that will keep you moving forward.

1. Don’t Expect Rejection

Anticipating rejection can lead to procrastination. Reaching out to a customer can be scary. But then again…what if you’re just what that customer needs when they need it? Don’t let the fear keep you from putting your best foot forward!

2. Establish Clear Goals

Have you created a clear set of goals? Get specific about all of your goals. Establish daily, weekly, and monthly goals. If you need help setting goals, consult your team members or supervisor. 

3. Create A Work Routine

Create a work routine. Make customer contacts at the same time every day. As you improve your skills, you’ll reach more people. The more people you reach each day, the greater your chances of getting to “yes.”

4. It’s Not About You

Don’t take the easy way out by making rejection personal. Learn to see each rejection as an opportunity to understand something about yourself.

5. No Doesn’t Mean Never

Once you hear a “no,” acknowledge it and continue talking. If you don’t have what your customer needs, you may know someone who does. Be a useful resource. You’re establishing and maintaining a long-term relationship.

6. Start With a Smile

Start your day by visualizing success. Picture your customers saying “yes.” Sometimes a positive attitude is all you really need to get that sale squared away.

7. Toughen Up

You can’t take a break every time you get a rejection. You need to toughen up and build up your endurance. Rejection is a great teacher if you learn to see it as motivation.

8. Ask for Feedback

Always ask for feedback when you’ve been rejected. If you don’t understand why it happened, you won’t know how to prevent it from happening the next time.

9. Keep Moving

Working with purpose prevents rejection from moving in and taking over. Choose to get things done. Organize your workspace. Finish up tasks you were putting off. Taking constructive action will improve your attitude.
