We’ve always emphasized giving back to our community as a cornerstone of The Austin Focus culture. We don’t limit ourselves to financial contributions, either, consistently finding new ways to lend our professional skills to good causes. Here are a few reasons why skill-based volunteering is so beneficial for companies.
Volunteering provides people with a greater sense of purpose, giving them more pride in the work they do along the way. When our associates use their marketing skills to help local nonprofits, they also feel empowered to keep making a difference through their work. Greater loyalty is the end result for The Austin Focus.
Giving our talents in the name of social impact also helps us build our company’s reputation. By donating as often as we can, we sharpen our public profile. We create goodwill with consumers that leads to new opportunities for our organization.
There are networking benefits that come with contributing skills to worthy causes in our area and beyond. We’ve been able to connect with local leaders we may not have otherwise through our philanthropic pursuits. This is especially true when we take part in hands-on volunteering, because we get up close and personal with influential people.
These are a few of the best reasons to engage in skills-based giveback pursuits. Like The Austin Focus on Facebook to stay updated on our charitable efforts.
