TFTW Trumpeting CSR

A business creates wealth when it meets a need at a profit.

Wealth is not generated by governments or politicians.  A nation’s riches are produced solely by businesses trading successfully.

So why is the standing of UK Incorporated at an all-time low and, more importantly, what can we do about it?

The popularity rating of corporate UK is at rock bottom for all sorts of reasons…the banking fiasco, political posturing and corporate greed to name but three.

Fixing it could not be easier. We can go from zero to hero by simply telling our employees, shareholders and stakeholders about the serious contribution our businesses make to the communities in which we live and work.

The jobs we create, the value our products and services provide, the tax we pay, the training we offer, our charitable initiatives as well as the efforts we are making to improve the environment in which we live.

In days gone by, we trumpeted corporate social responsibility from the rooftops. It’s time to stand tall and do so once again!
