CSR Software:
Everything You Need to Know

Manage All Your Giving Programs in One Place

One integrated CSR software platform with the power and versatility to manage all your corporate giving and grants management programs, so you can be more agile and create more impact.

What is Corporate Social Responsibility
(CSR) Software?

Companies use Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) software to manage philanthropic efforts from grant writing to volunteer opportunities. CSR software allows an organization to track and measure their CSR programs' impact, influence, and reach, maximizing the benefits to the community and building a purpose-driven organizational culture.

CSR software can be used to measure the effectiveness of an organization’s ability to manage and administer CSR Programs. These solutions help organizations share their accomplishments and improve their policies and practices to uphold their values.

As the entire purpose of monitoring your corporate social responsibility is providing positive social value, many businesses rely on CSR software to build a positive brand around their company.

Every CSR software product should include the ability to:

• Manage and maintain your CSR initiatives
• Audit current practices for actionable insights
• Measure the progress and impact of CSR programs

When all your giving is unified on one platform, not only is your life easier, you have a better view of the results you’re delivering within your organization and the impact you’re making on the world.

CSR Trends and Statistics

We’re thrilled to see companies embracing corporate social responsibility in any way they can. 

To help aid your efforts, these are the top trends surrounding CSR Software that companies, brands, and organizations are focused on this year.


Increased Corporate Transparency

Transparency not only builds trust but also promotes higher ethical standards. Buyers do their research into a company when they are looking to make a purchase. In fact, “94 percent of B2B buyers conduct some research before making a purchase.” Corporate transparency is quickly becoming the norm. Companies can give the public a window into their activities by sharing their accomplishments. Then, they can improve their transparency by soliciting feedback from their followers.

Whether through an innovative philanthropic video highlighting their efforts or spreading awareness through social media channels, corporate transparency provides a prime opportunity for an organization to share its accomplishments and encourage its followers to give back.

These companies also provide additional value to their customers and employees through clear communication about their community involvement. By articulating how companies give back to the people who live and work in their community, they improve their public perception.

Job seekers often consider the morality of their future employers, and consumers will support causes through their purchases. “75% of candidates will research a company's reputation before applying for a job opening.” Therefore, there’s never been a better time to offer a transparent look at your company’s philanthropic efforts.


Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives

If anyone thought it was optional before, the demand for a more equitable workplace is now a must. Organizations, regardless of industry, are striving to ensure their staff is representative of the communities where they live and work. For companies still working to improve, it’s critical to be sure these changes aren’t simply cosmetic. Set aggressive goals in your journey to diversify your workforce this year and stick with transparency on the way there. Consumers and employees can tell when you aren’t being authentic or taking time to learn.


Creativity in Campaigns

Inspired by the impacts of Covid-19, teams have taken innovation and creativity to new heights. As many offices moved remotely, virtual volunteer opportunities and fundraising events increased in popularity.

As we know, engagement activities of all sizes can be powerful if executed well. Mini-campaigns are also on the rise for 2022. Initiative-based campaigns or mini-campaigns can help focus on newly identified priorities, smaller projects, or one-off initiatives.

Disaster Relief Stays Relevant

We’ve all learned by now to expect the unexpected (thank you, 2020). It’s not nearly enough to think of emergencies as somewhere off in the distant future. Companies are looking at their emergency response strategies like never before by examining their logistics and production and considering the core needs of their specific communities. They’re preparing in advance to offer assistance or seek assistance when disaster strikes.

A thoughtful response strategy not only has a significant impact on your affected communities but also ensures your company remains steadfast and strong amid disaster. Both can be a driver of a positive reputation for your organization.


Employee Engagement Remains Essential

The research still shows employees are happier at work when they’re engaged and retain a more positive view of their company when their employer provides opportunities to give back. The challenges we hear consistently in this area are gaining momentum to support such initiatives and encouraging employee participation across the organization. While current initiatives bring you the same handful of employees every campaign, a successful program can help engage all departments and employees to encourage new faces to participate.
