Businesses are not separate to communities - they operate within them. Building strong connections with the communities in which you operate helps your business to thrive.
By proactively connecting within your community, you can show that you understand their needs and concerns, and are working with them to make it better. Business can have an important role in this process, helping to bring people from a range of backgrounds together to connect, share ideas, and common goals.
Business should also be reflective of the communities that they serve. The rise of purpose-led businesses is an illustration of this trend - these businesses are integrating wider social and environmental topics into their business models. This gives the community a sense of connection and of contributing to a greater good. By first ensuring that basic needs are being met, they unlock the potential of their staff and wider community to innovate and try new things, new experiences, and building their networks further. Cooperative and Social Enterprise are two models in this space.
Similar to the other issues, it is not sensible for your business to try to act on all topics of relevance for your community. To make progress, you should identify those topics of most relevance for your business, and then focus on those in order to drive more impact.
