About the Event
Corporate Social Responsibility is everybody’s business. Beyond positive social, environmental, and community impact, making the conscious choice to embed sustainability into your corporate behaviors elevates your bottom line. Let Eric Saarvala, Founder and Principal of @Impactalyst Consulting lead you through how to integrate purpose into your corporate culture and actions. Debunk the myth that you cannot afford to be sustainable and hear why you can't afford not to.
Strengthen client and community relations, build your reputation, increase employment attraction, leverage, and retention, and widen customer appeal. From startup to going public, and whether you have integrated social impact into your business or if these are new considerations, Eric will guide you through the What, Why and How to be a change maker in all the right ways.
