Social Impact Guide & Training Series

For anyone leading community engagement work at a small or medium-size business, we realize it can be a near impossible task to navigate the hundreds of CSR reports and resources published every month to find relevant information that you can actually use strengthen your program.
That’s exactly why Points of Light partnered with AT&T to condense a decade-worth of insights and best practices from The Civic 50 to create a free Social Impact Guide for community engagement practitioners and purpose-driven professionals. This simple, easy-to-use Guide empowers you with the tools, strategies and resources to assess and improve your program based on our impact framework for driving change in your community and company:
  • Investment: How your company strategically invests its employees’ time and talents along with its in-kind and financial resources in its community engagement and social impact programs. Think financial, human and social capital.
  • Integration: How your company integrates its community engagement and social impact programs throughout its culture, systems and business functions. How it “does well by doing good.”
  • Impact: How your company measures the social and business impact outcomes of its community engagement and social impact programs. Are you helping move the needle?
  • Inspiration: How your company can use employee recognition and storytelling to inspire others to take action in serving the needs of their community. Creating a movement, not a moment.

Within each section, we highlight the community and business benefits, breakdown concepts into tools strategies, provide thought-starters to jumpstart your planning, and list additional resources for further learning.  

As a deeper learning experience, we are excited to offer a series of customized online trainings based on the Social Impact Guide for business networks and communities, customers and vendors, and membership organizations and associations. Providing these trainings presents a unique opportunity to equip small and medium-size businesses and professionals with the tools, strategies and resources to drive positive change in their companies and communities.
