Why Educational Outreach PRoGRAMMES?
work on your brand and reputation
According to Cone Communications, 90% of global citizens indicated that they would boycott a company if they learned of irresponsible behavior. On the other hand, companies that are socially responsible and able to demonstrate their commitment to the community are more likely to have a stronger reputation, hence attracting and retaining loyal consumers who care about what a business stands for. Behavioral science researchers found that consumers tend to reward companies with outreach activities by being more loyal to them. Community outreach was even shown to have a stronger effect on customer loyalty than did service quality!
This improved corporate image and brand reputation among consumers would indirectly result in a more stable customer base, better market performances, increased stakeholder value, a more reliable source of future revenue, and eventually, a more valuable company.
Attract and retain talent
As industries go through the technological revolution and the job market evolves, the focus and priorities of new job seekers are changing. No longer is a high paying job enough to attract and retain talents. Most job seekers take a company's reputation and its contributions to the community into account when applying for and accepting jobs. Nearly 85 percent of Millennials stated that an organisation's community service outreach programs will highly impact their career choices and a strong sense of purpose was reported to be one of the top reasons that would attract and retain a millennial according to The Deloitte Millennial Survey 2016.
Being socially responsible and demonstrating that to the future generation is clearly one of the most important factors impacting employee recruitment and retention and it may become even more critical as the next generation move up the ranks in the workplace.
nurture the next generation of consumers
What does sustainability mean and how does it contribute to a social or environmental cause? Consumers are smart, but they also need to be educated on what goes on behind the scenes in your company in order to make the right choices. The impact of customers' perception on a business's brand is even more apparent in a time of social media - when companies do good, word gets around and customers notice immediately.
“The Reputation Institute” has reported that when making decisions, consumers are influenced more by a company’s reputation than their products or services at a rate of 60% to 40% respectively. It is apparent that a company’s ethics and community involvement are becoming important factors in which brand a consumer chooses.
