Businesses can become an integral part of their local community and often share common local concerns. An organisation's engagement with its community is part of a long term relationship which can have far reaching positive impacts for both the company and the community. Many organisations in Ireland support their local community in a variety of ways.
These can include:
- Funding of community projects
- Sponsorship of local clubs
- Volunteering by employees in educational activities and other outreach initiatives during work hours.
