What Is The Civic 50?
The Civic 50, an initiative of Points of Light, recognizes the 50 most community-minded companies in the nation each year as determined by an annual survey administered by True Impact. Since it was launched in 2012, the program has served as benchmarking tool and platform for sharing best practices in the corporate citizenship sector. The survey is based on Points of Light’s Corporate Civic Engagement Framework that provides a roadmap for companies committed to leveraging their time, talent, and resources to drive social impact in their business and communities. The Civic 50 Colorado is the top 50 companies in the state of Colorado.
Companies that participate in The Civic 50 Colorado have a unique opportunity to gain recognition for their community engagement programs, take a leadership position in corporate community involvement and to share their best practices with the broader business community.
Many companies have also said that the process of taking the survey and receiving their complimentary individual scorecards with information on their rankings helped them understand how they could improve their processes and strategies in the future.
The Civic 50 Colorado honorees:
are public and private companies with 15+ employees with Colorado operations and are selected based on four dimensions of their Colorado community engagement program, as determined by an annual survey:
- Investment: How extensively and strategically the company applies its resources to community engagement in Colorado, including employees’ time and skills, cash, in-kind giving and public leadership.
- Integration: How a company’s Colorado community engagement program supports business interests and integrates into business functions, or how it “does well by doing good.”
- Institutionalization: How the company supports community engagement in Colorado through its organizational policies, systems and incentives.
- Impact: How the company measures the social and business outputs and outcomes of its Colorado community engagement program.
