How Socially Responsible is Your Small Business? Take a quick Free Quiz to find out.
Do you manage or own a small business and you…
Have a strong personal desire or passion to contribute more to the world around you that you just can’t seem to fullfill?
Want to leave a better world behind you for your children and grandchildren but are a very busy Small Business Owner and don’t have time to do a lot outside of work and your family?
Want to be a great role model for your family, friends, employees, customers or community to inspire the behavior of others?
Social responsibility benefits can help meet these needs while also enhancing your brand and growing your business by…
Fulfilling a Personal Desire
Fulfill a personal need or desire for you, that the business alone does not, so that you don’t need to take on more than you already do.
Improving Customer Engagement
Attract new customers and increase existing customer loyalty so that you can generate more revenue.
Improving Employee Retention
Attract and retain employees with similar ideals as yours so that you can deal with less turnover and have more engaged employees.
Increasing Brand Awareness
Distinguish your business from competitors and increase brand awareness so that you can drive more traffic to your business.
Definition of Small Business Social Responsibility: A commitment to contribute to the greater good by taking educated, informed, and impactful small actions and implementing mindful business practices that improve the world around you while also contributing to your business growth and profitability.
The concept of Social Responsibility, that a business can balance profitability AND contribution to the greater good, started with initial theories in the mid-20th century and has become a widely accepted business strategy today.
However, most of the Social Responsibility emphasis, and therefore most of the existing resources, has been focused on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for large businesses. And yet…. small businesses account for 99.9% of the number of businesses in the United States and employ 58.9 million, or 47% of the private workforce (SBA 2018 statistics).
Just imagine all the good that could be done if every single small business owner embraced Social Responsibility?
Hi! I’m Tanya, the founder of Small Actions, Greater Good and creator of the Small Actions Framework.
I’m a Business Trainer, Strategic Coach, and Small Business Social Responsibility Advocate. To encourage Small Business Owners who want to make more of a difference in the world while still running a successful business, I created Small Actions Greater Good to increase awareness of Social Responsibility, share useful resources and inspirational stories, and host a community of like-minded individuals.
Through the use of my signature Small Actions Framework, I encourage and teach Small Business Owners how to increase their Social Responsibility awareness, embrace a Small Business Social Responsibility Mindset, implement a Social Responsibility Strategy, and communicate their efforts.
I believe that the power to make a difference in our world isn’t only for large corporations. Small Business Owners CAN make simple, but very effective changes, that not only contribute to their business and the world around them, but when combined with the efforts of other like-minded Small Business Owners, can truly contribute to a greater good.
