Giving back to society is a phrase we hear frequently – usually from folk who have made quite a success and are now starting schemes for other folk to learn how to improve their own lot. It can be as simple as supporting a local allotment association or maybe a group of teenagers who need sponsorship to get their idea off the ground. Volunteering can also be a big thing for many folk, those who hae not come from a background of sharing what we have and giving freely of our time.
Successful business owners can give back to society by engaging with young folk and offering them a week or two’s work experience when those weeks come round in the academic year. It’s a nightmare for careers teachers to find placements for all their charges if there are not many companies willing to help.
