Community Champion Award
ESI Monitor has developed a simple and effective way for businesses to demonstrate their commitment, and the contribution they make, to the community they operate in. Accredited businesses are listed in our directory as having surpassed our threshold. They will receive the award and quarterly benchmarking data on their performance compared to other businesses in their own industry, as well as interesting comparisons to other industries.
The aim of the award is to reward those businesses that contribute most and encourage other businesses to attain higher standards. Major adoption will see a significant increase in contributions from the business community to the third sector.
Private data, as shown in the table below, is be provided quarterly for individual businesses to judge their performance and make choices about future contributions. If required, the data can be used to provide regulatory, government, suppliers, customers, staff and relevant parties with independently verified data on their contribution to the community.
