14 – Coronavirus: 5 Questions To Guide Your CSR Response
The Coronavirus crisis is testing the armor of companies’ CSR (corporate social responsibility) and environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices - while, now more than ever, they rapidly need to be transparent and innovative. And we desperately want to help.
To help, we created two downloadable step-by-step guides and recorded two Coronavirus podcast episodes that walk through the guides to help you organize your thoughts and actions.
In this second of two episodes, we guide you through 5 practical steps to consider in developing your CSR response to Coronavirus:
Who can you tap into to help the cause?
What inherent resources does your company have to contribute?
When should you respond? Now or later?
Where: which of your locations need the most support?
Visit.org - is gathering a list of ways businesses can help impacted nonprofits from the safety of their home www.visit.org
Financial resources: by the hour, federal and state government bills and appropriations are being discussed, so keep an eye on opportunities to apply for assistance. Also actively research local, regional and state community foundation funding opportunities. A great start is the official benefits website of the U.S. government, www.benefits.gov
Can you use our podcast format to help others?
We invite you to a 20-minute conversation on or off our podcast to share your journey, by responding to:
How has this impacted you/your business/industry?
What do the next 30-60-90 days look like?
What opportunities do you see during this time? To perhaps innovate using your existing infrastructure?
