CANADA – This new year, resolve to get into the spirit of giving! Every contribution matters—from a few hours at a soup kitchen to entering an office team in a fun run. Sutton Spirit is here to celebrate your charitable work and contributions. This free, promotional service is designed to raise community profiles in a meaningful way. Giving back feels good and offers marketing and networking benefits as you raise awareness of important charities and causes.

Business News Daily reports that 87 percent of consumers who participated in a 2017 survey by Cone Communications in the United States, said they would purchase a product because a company supported an issue they care about.

In addition, when companies are on social media/in the news because of their good works, they tend to attract high-producing sales associates and staff.

Symantec’s global diversity and inclusion program manager, Susan Cooney, says that a company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy is a major factor in where today’s top talent chooses to work. “The next generation of employees is seeking out employers that are focused on the triple bottom line: people, planet and revenue,” Cooney told Business News Daily.
