Key Elements of the Small Actions Framework

BETTER UNDERSTAND WHY TO TAKE ACTION

Understand your personal motivations for doing social good (or your objections to sharing your efforts) AND how your actions can also benefit your business.

MAKE IT EASIER TO TAKE ACTION

Learn three different types of actions you can take and what to focus on next based on your unique business and Social Responsibility level.

BENEFIT FROM YOUR ACTIONS

Connect your actions to your business foundations to ensure your efforts do good AND benefit your business (i.e. making them effective).

What Are Small Actions?

One small step you choose to take that contributes to the greater good and goes above and beyond what would be considered “normal business operations”. Or in order words, a conscious and deliberate action that may…

enhance your business integrity

Actions that enhance how you do business including interacting with your customers, employees, contractors, and suppliers (in some cases only apparent to you).

Improve Safety, Health, & Wellness

Actions that improve the safety of your work environment and the overall mental and physical well-being of your employees and customers.

Make a Positive Environmental Impact

Actions that improve the safety of your work environment and the overall mental and physical well-being of your employees and customers.

Contribute to Your Community
