Stories And Causes You Care About

Encast, COVID-19, & The Future of CSR

By Leo Ramirez Posted on April 28, 2020

From the entire team at Encast, we hope you and your families are safe and healthy. 

We realize that the current economic environment is tough for all, especially Corporate Responsibility, Citizenship, and Sustainability teams that are being asked to cut their budgets. And while we are surely concerned about the state of social impact, we’ve found a way to help called EncastROI™. 

As you know, Encast has always been focused on empowering CSR professionals with critical tools they need to create, manage, and measure their programs more effectively. Until now, we’ve worked mostly with organizations that are using technology to increase their CSR investments. 

But in this environment, things are different. CSR teams, more than ever before, need quick, analytically rigorous, and informative ways to decide which aspects of their budget they’re going to eliminate in order to satisfy the C-suite’s risk mitigation plan. 

At Encast, we’ve created a streamlined process for solving this very problem. Today, companies can engage Encast to provide detailed reports on which of their programs are generating the greatest societal and business impact. We call these reports, EncastROI™. This solution has become a key differentiator of the Encast Culture Cloud™ and is quickly being adopted by CSR professionals across the globe. 

Encast ROI answers three important questions: 

  1. What can I afford to cut? 
  2. How can I best phase out low-impact programs? 
  3. How long will it take for these cuts to materially impact the metrics for which my function is being evaluated? (most notably, the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals)

If these are questions you are being asked by your leadership team, contact us today. 

Encast is keen on helping CSR professionals weather the storm of COVID-19 and are more than willing to provide an initial consultation, free-of-charge. 

Would you like to schedule an appointment? If so, please feel free to suggest a few times via EncastROI@encast.gives. 


All the best,
