Non-profit organizations and volunteering is a common thing in many western nations. For Japan, the concept and understanding of doing volunteering to do something, giving finances towards helping others, and community service have a different understanding. However, companies that understand the effectiveness of team building toward reaching corporate goals have many times accelerated past their competition.
In the April CI meeting we will have a very special guest who has done more than built an influential organization. We’ll have Charles McJilton founder of Second Harvest sharing insights on CSR, how other companies are building their brand by helping others, and new concepts on how to contribute but actually receive funds back through their giving also known as Social Impact Bonds.
Looking forward to meeting you at the interactive CI lunch!
