CORPORATE SOCIAL IMPACT

Doing good pays

It is well known that a corporate social impact strategy can provide an organisation with a strong competitive advantage. This is especially important with the rise of social procurement. However, many social impact strategies fail to reach their full potential, as the impact generated is generally difficult to measure, often meaning the ROI remains unclear. Social impact strategies can also easily lose momentum from poor stakeholder management and accountability to KPIs.

At Apricot Consulting we have developed a process that addresses these issues and maximises commercial return whilst delivering social impact. Our Corporate Social Impact strategy will determine the social impact activity your organisation can engage with to add societal value whilst experiencing enhanced business outcomes, ensuring the impact you have is sustainable and scalable.

By doing so your organisation in return will receive a competitive advantage through:

  • Company Brand Enhancement

  • Staff & Business Engagement

  • Access to New Market Opportunities & Product/ Service Development and Innovation

  • Enhanced operational efficiency

We can help you build a sustainable corporate social impact program that affects positive societal change and maximises commercial impact.
