Impact International Launches Connect
This is a press release from Impact International.
Demonstrating a significant commitment to the Millennium Development Goals, Impact International has launched a new online forum for developing sustainable corporate-community relationships.
Connect has been developed over the past 8 months as an online resource to help forge and support sustainable corporate-community relationships through people and organisational development methodologies.
Although the initial launch is targeted at Asia Pacific, Connect has been developed as an international forum that will help organisations to:
- share resources and ideas
- get involved in facilitated projects
- promote ideas for action and collaboration
The expectation is that through Connect Impact global clients and partners will be able to build and develop sustainable organisations and enterprises that make a positive contribution to the world. Specifically Impact are hoping that by providing facilitated community projects and initiatives they can take corporate responsibility beyond philanthropy and to a stage where CSR delivers triple bottom line results.
How does it work?
Once organisations and communities join Connect they will be able to view and post events, projects, stories and other relevant information on what they do and what kind of partnership they are looking for. They will also have access to the chat forums and to other opportunities and facilitated initiatives.
Corporate members will be able to access Connect to search for community partners in locations around the world and will be exposed to small NGO’s that do not have access to their own websites or marketing. The site also features Impact ‘Turn-Key’ projects that have been designed and are ready to go. These projects will be facilitated to deliver measurable business results as part of an organisational people development and retention strategy.
Over the next few months Impact will also be developing a set of Connect Awards for organisations and communities that are involved in sustainable projects and are examples of global best practice.
