Ryan Scott

As corporate volunteerism becomes an increasingly important part of the work experience, companies are coming up with new ways to embrace volunteering and tie it to their bottom lines.

The Widening Divide to Transforming Business Value

Art Stewart
Management Consultant; Writer; Speaker; Educator

As the reporting sector achieves new milestones in transparency, materiality and integration, other segments of the global responsibility movement struggle amidst the natural tensions created by the missionary zeal of the change agents – and the reflexive resistance of the old-guard establishment who perceives change (to say nothing of transformation) as threatening.

It’s no stretch to recognize some correlation between what characterizes America’s current public policy debates, and the tug of war to fully embrace and assimilate responsible behavior in the journey to a new business paradigm.

How to Tell Staff About Your New Employee Giving Program

Ryan Scott
CEO
Causecast

The wrong way:
Email to employees that looks something like this:

“Team:

On behalf of [company name], I’m proud to announce the launch of our new employee volunteer program. We’re working with Causecast to make volunteering easy, so look for opportunities and information on our new online volunteer and giving platform. You’ll be receiving more emails that walk you through our new program, step by step, and you can always contact Linda in HR with any questions.

We hope to see you at our Done in a Day event next Saturday, in service for the local food bank. As you know, this nonprofit is a special one to me, and your participation means a lot to me and the rest of senior management.

Making Sustainability Personal this Holiday Season

Kevin Lynch, Ph.D.
Leadership Executive-in-Residence
Center for Values-Driven Leadership at Benedictine University

If you are like me, you’ll spend this week recovering from a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. At my house, our adult children and a close friend joined us for quite a meal that included a 27 pound turkey that seemed just a little better than average this year.

Thanksgiving is a holiday that may better than any other begin to help us understand the idea of flourishing. Recently, I wrote about flourishing as a higher level of sustainability. John Ehrenfeld perhaps defined it best when he stated in his book, Sustainability by Design, that sustainability means “the possibility that humans and other life will flourish on the Earth forever.” As we sit in a state of “turkey contentment,” let’s consider this definition.

A Look Back – A Look Ahead

2014 rolled in with lots of excitement. The CRA advisory board met in Las Vegas to discuss the plan for the first full year under my reign and Jim Murren’s chairmanship. I’m thrilled to say that it was an incredible year. Membership nearly doubled as did engagement with the practitioners. We discussed a pilot webinar series – perhaps three or four educational opportunities.

From Where I Sit (December 2014)

Jim Murren
CEO and Chairman
MGM Resorts International

This is the time of the year when “community” takes on an even greater meaning.

In that spirit, my 50,000 colleagues in the Las Vegas area donated 1.6 million pounds of food to Three Square Food Bank, the region's largest food bank. We believe it was one of the largest food drives in the United States.

This year’s donation, collected during our fifth annual food drive, exceeded the previous record donation by 75 percent. That record was also set by my colleagues when they donated 922,000 pounds of food last year.

Executive Director's Report (November 2014)

 

Allie Williams, IOM
Executive Director, CRA

The CRA Webinar Series provides members the opportunity to learn from some of the corporate responsibility community’s top thought leaders. In January of 2014, we initiated a pilot program to schedule four educational webinars. The Professional Development Thought Leadership Council (TLC) busied themselves - and by the end of our first meeting, we had the four scheduled. Would four be enough to share all the knowledge this team offers? No!
