Why is Social Responsibility Important?
Why is social responsibility important? Well, there are several obvious reasons, breaking monotony, lifting spirits, cultivating friendship.
But the most important reason is to increase positive culture within an organization. Just think about it. People spend more time at work than with their families!!! The 40-hour workweek is almost a thing of the past. So creating strong relationships with co-workers is important.
This week we spent some time with some of our favorite people. The folks from the Walt Disney Company and their social responsibility team. Yay!
