Report: The key to running a small business is being socially responsible

– Editor’s note:
This article is a must-read for local business owners and mangers!

– “Social Studies”
“Being socially responsible is a key element of running a small business”

“Small businesses have long been the backbone of their communities. Small businesses support local charities, Little League, food drives, school fundraisers, and more. Most small-business owners don;t have to be told to be charitable – they already are. But being charitable is just one part of the wave of interest and increasing demand for businesses to be socially responsible.

“What does that term “social responsibility” mean? It means focusing on what’s called the triple bottom line: people, planet, profit. In addition to thinking of how they’ll make money, a socially responsible business owner also considers how their company contributes to people (the well-being of the employees, community, vendors) and the planet (environment, climate change, waste, animals, etc.).”

  1. This should actually apply at least as much to large and multi-national corporations. They are in a position to effect greater change across a wider spectrum than the local mom-and-pop shop. But alas, profit is typically the driving force, and community and environment don’t seem to count for much.
