There are many benefits to being a good neighbor, in addition to the practice being the right thing to do.
Being a community-minded business can help maintain your license, give you an edge over the competition and enhance your brand’s image.
There are many ways to be a visible presence in the communities where your centers are located:
Partner with neighbors
Find out what charities your neighbors support and join in. This will build awareness for your centers, increase the reach of your charitable efforts, strengthen the local economy and help you build networks, should you ever need assistance.
Working together establishes a reciprocal contribution and support relationship with neighbors.Back To Top
People like working for a company that gives back—and gives them time off to do the same.
Being an active corporate citizen has been shown to improve employee engagement, which can help with morale and retention.
To boost employee enthusiasm for your charitable efforts, get their input into what charities and community events you will support.
Showing that the company cares about the local community can help improve how employees treat each other—and donors.Back To Top
Like employees, donors like to see the company they patronize giving back. In a survey we did a few years ago, 30% of donors said they donated plasma in order to “help people who needed it.”
Help them feel part of what you are doing:
Emphasize the value of donating plasma by seeking out and sharing communications from groups of people with hemophilia, immune deficiencies, blood disorders, lung diseases and Kawaski disease.
You can even invite representatives of these groups to visit your centers and talk with donors about the impact of their donations.Back To Top
