Echo Interaction Group believes companies should choose charities to support. If the charity is related to their business, great! But if not, companies should talk with their employees and see what charities/causes they feel passionate about and choose one or more to support.
While performing charitable work can seem as though it is a completely selfless act, the behavior may actually be good for the health and well-being of those performing the act. Studies have repeatedly shown that doing good deeds for others is good, period. In fact, those feeling down and out can benefit from doing something to improve another person’s way of life.
For businesses, charitable giving provides a presence in the community and sets the pace for other companies to help and support as well. If a business also encourages employees to participate, workplace morale will improve as each person feels as though they are making a difference in the community. By forming a task force that helps organize and track the project, businesses can further boost worker confidence. Echo encourages companies to help and support charity groups as much as they can.
