Ask the Right Questions When Planning a Disaster Relief Response
Many companies have begun their response to the disaster in Japan. As contributions are made and initiatives undertaken, companies are faced with decisions about what portion of their budget to allocate and how they intend to mobilize their employees as part of the response.
In regards to these two decisions, LBG Canada, a group of companies representing the highest standard in community investment, reviewed how they responded in 2010 and found some applicable trends.
SiMPACT was established in 2005 with a vision to support management systems and skill development in the areas of strategic community investment and social return on investment (SROI).
SiMPACT is the facilitator of LBG Canada, a growing group of companies using the LBG Model as a management framework to maximize the value of community investment programs – for the community and for the business. Companies involved in LBG Canada are achieving a higher quality standard in program design, resource allocation and evaluation of the CI investments. The increasing use of the LBG Canada logo in public reporting symbolizes a commitment to quality and good governance of the CI portfolio.
