The Now Crowd presents: Social Impact

The Now Crowd are excited to present our first Sprint for 2019; Social Impact!

“Millennials don’t just want a job: They want a sense of purpose and to have a positive impact on our world.” Forbes, 2019.

Therefore, to retain talent in 2019, companies need to be thinking about more than profit. Companies need to shift their focus to the triple bottom line, looking at the environmental, economic, and social impacts.

Social Impact is considered to be a organisation’s impact on their community, employees, customers, and supply chain! It’s vital for business success. Join us as we take a deep dive into the broad and subjective topic that is Social Impact through conversations with leaders across the industry.

We will hear about Social Impact from representatives from a large corporate, a social enterprise incubator, and a Social Impact-focused consultancy. Receive expert advice, tools and resources that will show you how to make a positive Social Impact at your workplace.

Join us on Wednesday 27 February to learn all about the social space, and what your business can be doing to help the people it interacts with!
