IS IT GETTING HARDER
TO DO BUSINESS?
Businesses are now operating in a volatile and competitive
economic environment, managing more complexity and the way
forward is ambiguous or uncertain. Customers, staff, investors
and stakeholders are demanding more.
What brought you here?
COVID19 has caused a seismic shift in business and society. It has pressed the foot to the accelerator on emerging trends in corporate social responsibility and the role of business. The old paradigm of business existing only to make profit is dead. People across the world are looking to business to provide solutions for society’s big issues and fill the gaps left by government inaction.
How can a business do it all and continue to thrive? You can’t do it alone. You need to work with the right community partners to achieve your business and social goals.
Helping good businesses do better
A strategic approach to becoming a socially responsible business will unlock higher performance for your people, your marketing and your operations. Most importantly, your business will create sustainable and positive change for the world. You will do good and do better business.
HOW CAN WE
Getting started — review and assessment
A review and assessment of your CSR and community activities to give you a clear picture of your current situation. We review social responsibility strategies from the comparable peers in your sector, provide insights on best practice and demonstrate how your business is positioned. We look at your business ambitions, brand identity, gaps and pain points to identify areas for improvement and the untapped potential for your business. The results are provided in a comprehensive report that includes recommendations on the best way forward for social responsibility.
Social purpose statement
Through interviews, workshops and discussions with staff and stakeholders, we create a social purpose statement for your business. It provides the overarching statement of the societal benefits that your business creates for the world. It helps to create a narrative that brings together the business’ brand identity/ personality, culture and values and guides the CSR/ social responsibility strategy.
Developing a social responsibility framework, goals and plan
Through workshops and discussions with staff and stakeholders, we develop key pillars of social responsibility that are aligned to your business ambitions, brand, social purpose, capacity and resources. The framework and goals are tested and refined through consultation with leaders and staff to ensure commitment and understanding. A gap analysis is conducted, to identify areas where a community partner can contribute. The final document provides key implementation steps and recommendations on the types of community partners that are the best fit.
Partner search and selection
Building on the social responsibility framework, Stellar Partnerships will conduct a partner search and selection process. We identify a shortlist of candidates for review, provide insights and support for the final selection. If required, Stellar Partnerships will advise on tructuring the partnerships to ensure clarity of mutual objectives, appropriate measurement and monitoring and best practice maintenance of the relationship.
Your business has the option of selecting one or more options to tailor to your specific needs.
