As one of the fastest growing western cities, and one of the top in the world, London has seen a constant rise in economic performance out of the world’s major 300 cities.
“While many Chinese cities had faster per capita GDP growth than London, they lagged behind the U.K. capital on job growth. Both are critical for economic success.” Said Patrick Gillespie, writer for CNN money.
What constantly contributes to the rise of one of the world’s greatest cities? Not only do some companies in the UK understand that profit is important, they still find ways to point out the importance of human life and the social impact that businesses can have. Socially focused companies like SocialBox.biz are raising awareness of putting human life before profit.
Let’s take a look at how they made positive impact to life in London.
As a social enterprise, SocialBox.biz team has been dedicated to consistently making the title of being socially focused their mission and goal. They launched their new blog ‘constant positive impact’ that is focused on promoting practical examples of corporate responsibility and humanitarian efforts of companies around the word.
By definition, a social enterprise is committed to maximizing improvements in human well-being, as well as the environment, and not only does SocialBox.biz maximize social impact, they support it. Their partnership with Thames Reach has initiated projects developed to help the homeless and those less fortunate find access to ‘recycled’ technology via its corporate laptop recycling programme in an effort to increase their access to the on-line economy we live in.
Profits and Recognition
Even though Socialbox.biz is a socially focused company, they conduct their business with the mindset that they have products and services to sell and bills to pay and while being an example of a sustainable business. The team behind SocialBox.biz has won recognition for supporting the community and creating an innovative product that enhance London’s economy. Awards such as the National Business Award for innovation and the Best Corporate Social Responsibility Award, an award for business acknowledgement in the London community, not only spread testament to how well SocialBox.biz conducts their business as a social enterprise, but also as a testament to how well they aspire to serve their community.
Through ways such as these, SocialBox.biz is contributing to the growth of London, especially by increasing awareness for the need to help those who are homeless and others in need for the London economy to positively and steadily rise.
