Corporate Citizenship

Corporate responsibility has become a key driver in securing stakeholder interest, consumer trust, and employee loyalty. Additionally, with increased employee demand for a socially-minded workforce, businesses are recognizing the importance of civic responsibility in recruiting and retaining talent. Therefore, NCoC believes the business sector plays a critical role in helping create a more engaged citizenry, and has made corporate citizenship a part of its program portfolio.

NCoC believes to address community issues and challenges in any area, research must be collected, discussion must occur, and solutions must be proposed. Here, you can see research, discussion, and solutions associated with corporate citizenship. This is meant to help explain and animate that focus area, as well as facilitate the process of moving from information to action within it.
