EON does its share in community-building by using its resources and expertise to influence various publics to support advocacies for community building.
BRANDING THE PHILIPPINES
EON chooses to be a thought leader in its industry, not just to distinguish itself from other practitioners, but also to underline its role in promoting a more progressive future for the nation. Branding the Philippines is an advocacy that is rooted firmly in the belief that the country’s greatest asset and most effective brand ambassador to the rest of the world is its people. It promotes the belief that Filipinos can be summed up in 4 C’s: colorful, caring, creative and collaborative. Through articles, speaking engagements and other forums, EON reiterates this message in the hope that the sooner Filipinos live and breathe this advocacy, the sooner the world will follow.
EON is a partner of Hands on Manila (HOM) in encouraging career-oriented individuals, the youth, parents, and other people who have spare time to make volunteerism part of their lives. By giving a portion of their time on weekends, for example, volunteers can make a difference to people living in a shanty area, orphanage, or palliative care center of hospitals. EON is also an active participant in HOM’s Servathon, an annual one-day event where hundreds of volunteers from the business sector and non-profit organizations are provided opportunities to give assistance to marginalized sectors in Metro Manila.
EON supports the initiatives of Sa Aklat Sisikat Foundation, Inc. (SAS) in building a nation of readers. SAS provides resources to motivate students to make reading a part of their daily lives.
In the same vein, EON also supports the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) in their various efforts at helping Filipino children progress with their reading and comprehension skills, through the Bright Minds Read (BMR) program.
EON also plays an active role in the English is Cool® campaign of the European Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines. This campaign aims to inspire the Filipino youth to improve their English and access better options in their life.
CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR)
EON promotes CSR, through its responsible business practices and its relationships with its stakeholders as well as the environment. EON also promotes CSR through social engagement.
By espousing these advocacies, EON is not only doing its part in community-building but is also putting itself a step ahead for the benefit of its clients who may want to forge partnerships with non-government organizations for their own corporate social responsibility work.
