Corporate social responsibility
The Insights purpose is to create a world where people truly understand themselves and others, and are inspired to make a positive difference in everything they do.
We're already bringing this purpose to life in the work we do every day in the corporate world, but now we want to use our expertise to positively impact people who wouldn't usually have access to the work we do. It's our way of wrapping our arms around the whole world, and sharing the magic of Insights in a way that works for them.
We'll be squeezing all of our lovely Insights-y goodness into three main areas. Our CSR highlight this year is the Big Insights Challenge, where we'll be walking the Great Wall of China in support of the utterly fantastic charity, Mary's Meals. Keep reading to find out more about our big adventure.
Our chosen charity right now is Mary's Meals. They're frankly a pretty special organisation. Their vision is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things. They work in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, attracting hungry children to the classroom, filling their bellies while helping them secure brighter futures at the same time.
Soon, nine intrepid Insights-ers will be tackling the Great Wall of China to raise money for Mary's Meals, and we can't think of a more deserving organisation for our first ever Big Insights Challenge. There's also a whole host of Wee Insights Challenges going on across our local offices, enabling all our Insights colleagues to support Mary’s Meals by raising awareness and funds.
We're super-excited to get the Big Insights Challenge underway, and super-proud to be able to contribute to the life-changing work that Mary's Meals does every day. We'll be all over our social channels as we walk, so follow us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to chart our progress and cheer us on.
We'll be offering the Gift of Discovery to NFPs (Not For Profit), charities and social enterprises. Working with senior leadership teams of up to 12 people, our Practitioners can volunteer their time, and we'll donate the Insights Discovery Personal Profiles.
We'll also be choosing a small number of CSR partners to work with each year. Forging a deep, meaningful and long-lasting relationship, we'll give our CSR buddies wider access to our portfolio to help them nail their business challenges. We'll invest resources in helping our CSR partners wherever they need it most.
Our programme for young people is called Discover Me Discover You. It's all about helping young people understand themselves through the lens of Insights Discovery, before they embark upon their chosen careers, or take their next steps in life, whatever those may be.
We're currently working hard to get this off the ground, so check back for more information soon.
