It is a well-known fact that ‘what goes around, comes around’. It is very important to know how your company is giving back to society. Are they giving in nature? Do they believe in contributing to society for a brighter future?
The sixth point to consider when choosing the right home business for you is Corporate Social Responsibility. It is very important to know this because this will give you a square idea on the company’s philosophy and mission. The answer to this will give you an insight into the management’s vision and goals.
Some points that you may want to do your due diligence on are:
1. Does the company give back to society? If yes, in what ways? Do they support charitable causes, either locally or globally? It can be social, environmental or something else. As long as they believe in giving before receiving, you are in the right place.
2. How does the company use its profits? Does it put back some of its profits to grow your business by giving you better education? Does it use part of it to benefit society? Or does all profit go in the owner’s pocket?
3. What is your company doing to benefit the future generation? I have known companies who sponsor children’s education. Some very successful companies donate to healthcare programs in underprivileged nations. What is your company doing in these regards?
The answers to the above questions will give you enough idea about the company’s outlook and business style. If the answers are favorable, then you are in the right place.
Good Luck with your endeavor and I wish you all the best.
