Stakeholder Engagement Consultants Group News How one earplug company supports jobs for 200 people with disabilities. Bring the noise: DAP World CEO Douglas Pick. Photo © Jeff Clark Thanks to the ambient noise of his University of Southern California college campus and the surrounding urban chorus of screeching tires, police sirens and the occasional gunshot, Douglas Pick needed some sleep. Many nights, while a student at USC's Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, earplugs delivered the silence he craved. After leaving a job at A&M Records in 1992, Pick put the lessons from his USC days to work to research earplugs.

In 2000, I introduced the concept of Blended Value as a broader way of thinking about the nature of value creation by organizations (whether for-profit, nonprofit or hybrid) and through the application of capital (whether philanthropic, below-market or market rate). I developed the concept following a decade (1990-2000) of conversations with social entrepreneurs, founders of for-profit mission-driven companies, social investors, strategic/venture philanthropists, folks involved in sustainable development and so on—a decade at the end of which I realized I was having the same conversation with hundreds of folks, but each set of actors felt their particular community and issues were unique. What I concluded, however, was that these were all ultimately discussions about the nature of value—and they reflected an emerging understanding of value as "both/and" as opposed to "either/or;" they were discussions about value as a function of economic returns with social and environmental impact.

Social CRM ideas by Mark Tamis Implementing programmes that could potentially bring about profound changes in the way a company does business also entails that we need to deal with people issues such of putting a lot of strain and stress on those involved and lack of motivation – or risk the programme failing. In order for the programme to be successfully carried through and arrive at the results that we seek, we also need to ensure that everyone involved understands the need for change and adapts to a different way of working. In the following post Dr Graham Hill looks at what the drivers are that we can leverage to obtain the optimal outcome.
The Fundamental Flaws in How We Finance the Nonprofit Sector By Nell Edgington Today the Nonprofit Finance Fund (NFF) released the results of their sixth annual State of the Nonprofit Sector survey and the data underlines a growing crisis in the financial sustainability of our nonprofit sector. 56% of nonprofit leader respondents reported that they were unable to meet demand for their services in 2013, this is the highest rate since the survey’s inception six years ago. And the scary part is that this inability to meet demand is not because of a temporary down period in the economy, but rather because of deeper dysfunctions in how we funnel money to the sector. As Antony Bugg-Levine, CEO of NFF put it, “The struggles nonprofits face are not the short-term result of an economic cycle, they are the results of fundamental flaws in the way we finance social good.” Accelerating Social Innovation
