Why Add CSR?
So, you're headed to The Orange County Convention Center for an incredible event. You're putting in all the effort to ensure that your meeting, convention, or conference goes off without a hitch, right? Well, we all know that the success of an event is measured by how impactful, memorable, and meaningful it is for attendees. Now, here's the exciting part: incorporating an element of give back or corporate social responsibility (CSR) can truly make a difference! According to a recent study by Forbes, hosting a give-back event for your group at the OCCC offers four fantastic benefits for your group:
Network Expansion - There's something magical that occurs when people come together to give back. The conversations and connections formed during these moments can lead to powerful and lasting bonds.
Empowerment - Integrating CSR into your event doesn't just make your organization look good; it also makes your attendees feel good! It fosters higher morale, camaraderie, and respect among the group. This effect is particularly strong when you directly help the local community and make a real impact.
Reputation - Organizations, associations, and companies thrive by expanding their base. Supporting charities like No Child Hungry not only provides wonderful outlets for assistance but also enhances your organization's reputation, brand, and ultimately, your customer base. People naturally prefer businesses that give back to their community. It creates a sense that their money is well spent and contributes to the community, fostering loyalty and shared values among your attendees.
Good Marketing - The latest Cone Communications Study revealed that 9 out of 10 Millennials would switch to a brand associated with a cause. While you shouldn't give solely to showcase your accomplishments, it's important to authentically engage with this highly influential demographic. Supporting a cause through your event is a proactive and positive way to connect with everyone involved.
So, as you plan your event at The Orange County Convention Center, keep in mind these powerful benefits that come with hosting a give-back event. It's an opportunity to expand your network, empower your attendees, boost your reputation, and engage with a cause in a meaningful way.
Team Building Activities at OCCC.
Every group is unique. You've got a great mix of personalities, you've got ideal outcomes in mind, and you've got everyone coming together. Today, many teams find themselves feeling a little less connected as we function in a world of Zoom and Teams calls, emails have supplanted most phone conversations, and many teams have fully remote members. The era of the water cooler has faded into the sunset, and our fast pace often leaves many feeling less connected to the greater organization than ever before. And, as a result, effective team building activities have never been more critical to the success of your team. There a reason Forbes has called team building activities the best investment your company can make. It's easy to understand why.
Now, why work with us on your team building activity? Well, we come at team building from a unique place. Many of our own team members came from the corporate world, and led teams in the hundreds. So, when we began, we were already familiar with the world of team building. And while there are a lot of great companies out there that offer and facilitate team building activities, we realized that most of those companies were missing out on perhaps the most powerful dynamic of team building - making a collective difference in the world!
Team building activities, at their core, bring team members together to network, socialize, and get to know each other on a deeper level. In short, team building done right deepens the bond that the team shares. Data shows that there's no more powerful way to bond than to share in the work that makes the world a better place. When we come together and help those less fortunate, it creates a strong connection between us. And that's where we come in. At No Child Hungry, we understand the power of teams. And we know how to bring them together. Our team building activities are diverse and every single one lends itself to be customized for your group and your goals. There's no one-size-fits-all approach here! We take the time to get to know you, your organization, and your ideal outcomes. Then, we customize your activity in every way.
Our facilitators are the best in the business. And, unencumbered by the traditional "for profit" model so commonly found in the world of team building, we're able to open new doors. Our events focus on the positive impact these activities have on teams of all sizes. And, inside that impact, we also focus on connecting the output of these activities on the community. In short, we seek out the intersection of your culture and goals, the just-right activity, and the impact for good found at the end. It's a powerful approach, and one that's proven very effective.
