Corporate Social Responsibility: You’re Invited to Join Business Equity for Indy to Stand for Change

Corporate social responsibility (CSR) isn’t just a buzzword—it’s a strategic imperative. Research conducted by Gallup found that companies with highly engaged employees experience 59% lower turnover rates. Engaged employees are more likely to feel connected to the organization’s mission and values, which are often aligned with CSR initiatives; highlighting the significant impact CSR efforts can have on employee retention and satisfaction.

Business Equity for Indy (BEI) understands this deeply while also acknowledging that companies that invest in equity and inclusive business practices are ensuring stronger talent strategies and stronger profitability. According to a study by Harvard Business Review, companies that prioritize CSR initiatives outperform their counterparts financially. The study revealed that firms with strong CSR commitments experienced a 20% increase in financial performance compared to those without such initiatives. This indicates that integrating CSR into business strategies not only benefits society but also yields positive returns for shareholders and stakeholders alike.

Through BEI, member companies across the Indy Region have access to tools that support their CSR efforts and drive impactful, measurable change within their organizations. This May, BEI invites member companies to an inaugural event. Standing for Change: Clearing the Path Forward is a corporate conversation aimed at challenging systemic injustices and the event promises to unpack root causes of inequity, amplify marginalized voices, and identify areas for action to decrease systemic racism in the community.

Featuring Keynote Speaker: Joy Mason, CEO, Six Sigma Racial Equity Institute

“Engagement, Retention, Profit: The Triple ROI of Project-Based DEI”
