Forbes India Philanthropy Awards 2013 is here
forbes-philanthropy-awards Our economy grows faster than the rest of the world, so does the disparity between the haves and the have-nots. It is a gap that government alone cannot bridge.

It is important that companies and corporate citizens see themselves as a part of society and use their skills, leverage their own finances to give back to the world, to solve some of the most pressing issues, to build a more just, humane and equitable society.

The Forbes India Philanthropy Awards seek to recognise and reward the efforts of the organisations and individuals who have not just given time, money, skill and expertise, but have created model institutions that will inspire others and show them the way. Nominate your organisation for the prestigious awards.
Corporate Philanthropy & Employee Engagement: Avoiding CAVE Dwellers
cave-dwellers Amidst continued economic uncertainty, it’s ever more important to recruit and retain employees who will show long-term loyalty to your company. Staff turnover is a costly exercise, and it’s particularly damaging when you lose top talent.

According to Curt Coffman, engaged employees are builders. “They use their talents, develop productive relationships, and multiply their effectiveness through those relationships. They perform at consistently high levels. They drive innovation and move their organization forward.” Coffman describes “actively disengaged” employees as the “cave dwellers” (Consistently Against Virtually Everything.) “These employees tear down what their engaged coworkers are building.”

The three areas where corporate philanthropy builds a momentum of engagement that helps build employee pride and loyalty are Customer, The world at large, Corporate culture.
