Quality of Life: The Civic 50
The Civic 50 is the first comprehensive ranking of S&P 500 companies that best use their time, talent and resources to improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business.
Points of Light and the National Conference on Citizenship, in partnership with Bloomberg LP, ranked the Civic 50 companies using seven metrics:
2. Measurement and strategy
4. Employee civic growth
5. Community partnerships
6. Cause alignment
This series, penned by Jackie Norris, executive director of the Points of Light Corporate Institute, exclusively for CSRwire Talkback, will examine best practices in each of these seven areas and illustrate what makes the Civic 50 companies winners.
