Demonstrating the impact and value of your organisation essential, especially nowadays for the continued success of your organisation.
Organisations are accountable to their funders in terms of evidencing how they have spent any grants they receive and the outcomes of the projects these have funded. And increasingly, consumers are considering a companies social impact when making purchasing decisions, and in an era of greenwashing and virtue signaling, consumers want proof of what their money is going to support.
For companies that function solely to generate profit, measuring their growth and ability to achieve this is relatively straightforward. But for organisations that what to make an impact beyond profit, measuring things that are a little more human led, and a little more qualitative can be a little more challenging.
But how do you communicate the successes of your organisation when these go above and beyond profit?
SROI: Social Return Of Investment with Lynn Hendry will break down some barriers and provide useful tools not only to measure but also communicate evidence of your social impact with stakeholders, ensuring you can continue to acquire funding and attract socially conscious customers.
