September to December is known as Giving Season and it’s the time when people give the most. During uncertain economic times, the pressure to pull back in specific areas of your business is real. But Goodness matters — now, more than ever. And you and your people can start small … with One Good Thing. If each of us takes just one action, we can collectively create massive, exponential impact. Encourage your people to join in by making a donation, volunteering for an hour or doing a good deed. Learn why it’s important to stand behind your CSR program, especially now: Read 5 Tips for a Thriving CSR Program During Uncertain Economic Times.
