At SEAchange, LTD, we believe that the power of main-street capitalism has the ability to inspire and change the world. We strive to amplify the work of purpose-driven businesses who advance community, environmental, and social impact models to achieve strong financial performance. Doing good in the world and thriving economically are inextricably connected, and we are here to help organizations achieve both. We live by three small words, with one big goal:
Do Good. Thrive.
Do Good. Thrive.
In order to Do Good, we embrace the belief that our business has a moral obligation to support and advocate for our people, our community, and our world.
We must first ensure that we cause no unnecessary harm. By being acutely aware of ourselves, our actions, and the impact that we have on the world, we actively challenge ourselves to be conscientious in our pursuits. This hyper focus allows us to mitigate negative impacts so that we can then amplify those that are positive.
We must be stewards of the lives we touch.
We must be an active community advocate.
We must do our part to protect our planet.
In order to Thrive, we must embrace the new economic realities.
The global economy is undergoing a monumental seachange. The reality of an evolving workforce and reprioritization of consumer and employee expectations has surfaced. Talent attraction, retention and development are long-standing national issues. Many studies and initiatives have tried to address the challenges of workforce development nationwide. It is time for business to evolve.
Research conducted by Gallup in their State of the American Workplace found that businesses able to articulate their “why” have a competitive advantage for workforce and consumer attention. Gallup reports that employees who can link personal goals to the organization’s goals are 3.5 times more likely to be engaged. Highly engaged businesses realize a 41% reduction in absenteeism and a 17% increase in productivity. Engaged employees are more present and productive, attuned to the needs of customers. When taken together, the behaviors of highly engaged business units result in 21% greater profitability.
Similarly, Firms of Endearment tracked the performance of purpose-driven organizations and S&P 500 organizations over a 10-year span. During that period, the growth percentage for purpose-driven organizations was slightly greater than 20% annualized while S&P 500 organizations experienced annualized growth at a rate of just less than 10%.
The work being supported by SEAchange is not only rooted in social and environmental wellbeing, but economic vitality, prosperity, and achievement.
Together, we can Do Good. Thrive.
Our profits fuel our good. We can elevate and embrace a world principled on the notion that what is good for society is also good for business.
At SEAchange, LTD, we firmly believe that organizations that prioritize social, community, and environmental stewardship will propel themselves into the new economy built on collaborative impact. Those who continue with business as usual will fall to the wayside.
