Giving is our Corporate Social Responsibility
One of the great things we’ve always admired of Salesforce is its corporate social responsibility. That charter started with its 1% Pledge of Giving Back to society, most importantly: donating 1% of employee time. I know from personal experience just how important this giving it. Salesforce also gives 1% of equity to charitable causes to strengthen the community through its Foundation organisation.
Salesforce was however not our first inspiration of corporate philosophy. That honour goes out to Anita Roddick. Decades ago, in hip Brighton, UK, she started a no-packaging cosmetics business, and relayed her story in her bestseller book ‘Body & Soul.
With no animal testing and only ingredients that are good for human bodies. She called it The Body Shop. We love how she made business an art and a soulful pursuit, recycling packaging and omitting harmful products in her range.
