Among the activities of everything 2 human belongs also technical assistance to associations, organizations or enlightening non-profit organizations.
What led us to charity?
In our current consumerist culture, it is imperative and vital for any private sector business to prioritize any and all internal activities that help drive profits and create material results. Perhaps the best-known internal activity that can be used to maximize profits and help promote business prosperity is effective time management.
However, despite the best efforts of each organization, dead periods are likely to occur. While these dead periods can be spent in any way that a corporation ultimately wishes, it seems most beneficial for the company to redirect their human resources to use these periods as opportunities whereby they may engage in team-building exercises and group based charity.
The sad reality is that for a number of companies, “charity” is simply a marketing strategy. For other companies it remains a component of a broader strategic objective often developed and implemented by those in executive positions. In many of these cases, these broader strategic objectives are not meeting the needs of the organization and/or their associations, and as such, only contribute to the commercial causes of the corporation.
In cases like that, “charity” becomes a coordinated fake effort to enhance the reputation of the company and has little to nothing to do with promoting a healthy corporate culture or charity itself. Indeed, oftentimes when corporations state that they are in fact, charitable, it is on conditional terms, which usually result in lavish parties being held. In these cases, the receiver of the charitable funds that were supposedly raised is grateful to have had their cause get additional exposure, and accepts the necessary conditions that the business imposed for hosting such an event to begin with.
Sadly, this is how “good business relationships” often work. This is where our corporation differs drastically from other businesses. We do devote our down time to charitable activities, but we do so from the perspective that we are simply doing good work. We do not make charitable giving a business strategy, rather we make it a voluntary act of good will.
