Businesses can be a force for good as well as a way of making money. Social enterprise is a form of business where the business model is to directly do good work – it might involve working with charities, or employing vulnerable people, or sourcing supplies from ethical suppliers.
You don’t have to be a social enterprise yourself to be a part of this. If you are in business, why not work with a social enterprise? It gives you the opportunity to play your part, and it can be a great PR opportunity as well. You can publicise the fact that you are working for the greater good and get media attention for all of the right reasons.
Start looking out for opportunities to work with social enterprises sooner rather than later. There are more opportunities than you might think. Speak to suppliers and look out for other businesses you can partner with.
