Being a business leader involves more than success in your field. Around the world, business leaders are called upon to serve in their communities. That’s why many businesses are celebrating National Mentoring Month.
Benefits for Businesses
Businesses today are looking for ways to get involved. Giving back is good for your business. Consumers want to purchase products from businesses that give to charity. Data from Cone Communications reveals that 88 percent of consumers said that they would purchase a product if it had a social or environmental benefit. Additionally, partnering with the community to support social initiatives can be an excellent way to grow your brand. It’s also an opportunity to network with other leaders. One such way to get involved is through the National Mentoring Month. Created by the Harvard School of Public Health, the event is an effort to focus the nation’s attention on the need for mentors.
