How can a business balance being philanthropic with being profitable?
Business owners can improve the world around them by leveraging their employees’ time, skills, and unique talents. At the same time, we know from experience that many businesses face time and budget constraints that make charitable work difficult, hard to sustain, or just a distraction. It’s easy to post a webpage extolling the virtues of charitable giving, but when it comes down to it, how does a business really make it work?
When profit margins are tight, or employees already work as many hours as they can, or perhaps no one can agree on how best to help, how can a company really make a difference? Let us know your thoughts on how a business can balance being philanthropic with being profitable.
