The Most Community-Minded Companies of America: The Civic 50
The Civic 50, an initiative of Points of Light, in partnership with Bloomberg LP, honors the 50 most community-minded companies in the nation each year as determined by an annual survey.
Benchmarking and sharing the best practices of community engagement offers companies that participate in The Civic 50 a roadmap for using their time, skills, and other resources to improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business. The Civic 50 will help translate good intentions into sound business practices for years to come.
The Civic 50 winners are selected based on four dimensions of their U.S. community engagement program:
- Investment: How extensively and strategically the company applies its resources to community engagement, including employee time and skills, cash, in-kind giving and leadership.
- Integration: How a company’s community engagement program supports business interests and integrates into business functions, or how it “does well by doing good.”
- Institutionalization: How the company supports community engagement through its institutional policies, systems and incentives.
- Impact: How a company measures the social and business impact of its community engagement program.
