Today's customers hold companies to a higher standard. They're looking for more than quality services when choosing a company to work with.
Eagle Logistics understands how important social responsibility to our customers and we focus on and practice a few broad categories of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).1. Environmental efforts
One primary focus of corporate social responsibility is the environment. Businesses regardless of size have a large carbon footprint. Any steps they can take to reduce those footprints are considered both good for the company and society as a whole.
Businesses also practice social responsibility by donating to national and local charities. Businesses have a lot of resources that can benefit charities and local community programs.3. Ethical labor practices:
By treating employees fairly and ethically. This is especially true of businesses that operate in international locations with labour laws that differ from those in the United States.
Attending volunteer events saves a lot about a company's sincerity. By doing good deeds without expecting anything in return, companies are able to express their concern for specific issues and support for certain organizations.5. HR Policies
Eagle Logistics created many people to the industry of freight forwarding in Sri Lanka during the past 12 years. Company employed unemployed individuals and trained and developed them with knowledge in Freight forwarding.
All stakeholders in a business seek to understand and value the mission of the company, and why they should invest and support in it and, according to our CEO Mr Asanga Weerackody, that is why CSR matters. "In recent history, the organizations that have achieved remarkable things tend to be the ones that share success with others, instinctively," he said.
Mr Asanga Weerackody noted that CSR is becoming more mainstream as forward-thinking companied embed sustainability into the core of their business operations to create shared value for business and society.
We have 7 friends growing with our business during the past 10 years. Each friend has a nominated staff member who is in constant touch with regards to their education and extra-curricular activities and make sure that finance is not a barrier. This is one of our SCR efforts.
