10 Simple Ways Companies Can Make a Positive Impact this Holiday Season

1. Organize a Gift Drive Event

Businesses may support or arrange a gift drive for children in need. Holidays may be extremely tough for some children and you can help lighten the season with a unique gift. Gifts will lift children’s moods and bring much-needed pleasure and laughter at this special time of year.

2. Support Underserved Communities

The holidays are a great time to show a company’s compassion their communities. This time, look around for smaller charitable organizations that do important work but maybe don’t have the budget to advertise and are therefore often overlooked. Do whatever you can to assist those around you that need some help. They need it, they will appreciate it, and they will remember you for it.

3. Share Sustainable Habits

Holiday shopping and social gatherings create an impact on our planet. Parties and get togethers  can create an increase in food wastage and packaging. Gift giving can create garbage through  wrapping paper for gifts and the purchase of products can have unintended carbon footprints. Companies can share information and tips on how to do holiday shopping with an environment-friendly approach. Asking employees to share their ideas for environmentally friendly gift giving and organizing low impact parties will create comradery and have a positive impact.

4. Choose a Charity to Support

Nothing draws together individuals of all faiths like the holidays. Ask your staff and workers to choose a charity to support this holiday season and then come up with ideas on supporting that charity throughout the holiday season. Staff can conduct a fundraiser, giving gifts or food hampers, or volunteer time to promoting their general objective. Finding a charity that corresponds with the company’s objectives is a win win for everyone.

5. Offer time off for community service

Companies may make a positive social impact this holiday season by giving their staff paid time off to help individuals in their community. Caring about the well-being of others by donating a gift of time can improves community spirit and creates happiness.

6. Create Social Awareness

Companies can choose a social issue that is aligns with their values and use their platform to share information and educate their customers and the public on this issue. Start small – every little bit counts and adds up over time.

7. Involve your Customers

During the holidays, inboxes are jammed with promotions, so make your company stand out by engaging with your audience about your charitable initiatives. Use email campaigns to send branded emails informing your audience about the effect of their contributions or connecting them with your company’s volunteer opportunities. You can create customized landing pages about your charitable work to further educate. Add an announcement bar to your website’s homepage to increase awareness and encourage visitors to learn more or join. Sharing your efforts this holiday season may motivate other companies and community people to do the same.

8. Thank Your Employees

Your organization would not be able to progress without the dedication of your staff. Most businesses emphasize spreading holiday happiness to their staff at the end of the year as a way to show appreciation for another successful year. Any effort is appreciated, whether it is a gift, a bonus or some type of celebration, the key is gratitude.

9. Focus on Your Family and Friends

It’s time to step away from your company for a minute. Entrepreneurs and company owners devote the bulk of their life to their companies and crafts, achieving many wonderful things in the process. Taking some time off from the company to focus on friends and family gives everyone a chance to re-energize and come back to work with motivation and appreciation for the extra rest and time away.

10. Make a Positive Impact all Year

Ask your employees for ideas that your company can put into practice all year long that will demonstrate your positive community impact. Whether it is once a week, once a month, or once in awhile, making a plan to show generosity and planet for your community will make a positive impact all year long.
