Helping the community

We all know that treating our colleagues with respect is an essential element of a good corporate culture.

But we often forget that showing respect to the communities where we work can also send a strong message to our employees about what we truly value.

In his latest post on Forbes, Bill Higgs tells us how his company gives back to the community. An interesting practice is the “adoption” of a junior high school student every two years. Employees not only mentor the student academically through graduation, but also the student’s family by helping parents find better jobs.

This is a great framework: help yourself by helping others.

And finding ways to help others is not difficult right now.
