It seems that the world is experiencing an era of more conscientious capitalism through the implementation of formal Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs. The triple bottom line – People, Planet and Profits – is becoming an essential element for many companies around the world, including Paragon.
We believe CSR is a focal point worldwide for business best practices and the core of daily operations for employees. Along with Paragon, many companies associated with us are involved in charitable work, whether it is supporting environmental issues, health and welfare, social good will, or global awareness. Many charitable efforts by companies are performed in a variety of ways and the overall advantages are abundant, including operating more efficiently; however, the true value received is that of social good will – we believe that setting a good example is the greatest benefit. By setting an example for our employees, clients and outside suppliers, Paragon has benefited in ways beyond profits, including creating a more positive, collaborative work environment where our values are truly integrated into our business philosophy.
Volunteer initiatives can give employees an even deeper sense of purpose and motivation to do the best work possible in and outside of the office. Employees who are allowed to choose causes to support and are provided several options for giving back to their communities tend to be happier and more productive in their jobs. Paragon helps support our employees’ charitable ventures by providing a company match for charities of our employees’ choosing.
At Paragon, we strive to do our part in achieving a healthier and more conscientious world. Corporate Social Responsibility is an extension of the way we have and will continue to do business.
