We don’t always think of compassion as an integral part of a good business mindset. Yet, sometimes it’s easy to see that compassion IS good for business. One great example is a local business called Finders Keepers Consignments. In their recent newsletter they highlight the fundraiser that they held for a local refugee service agency and they don’t stop there. “Finders Keepers is proud to employ a diverse group of people, including refugees from South Africa, The Congo, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria. We support the right of all people to seek refuge and we are happy to be in a community that is so wonderfully enriched with diversity and love. We are honored to work beside our amazing co-workers and humbled by the strength that they carry quietly within themselves. It is a privilege to be in their company.” Check out their newsletter and blog to read the stories of some of these amazing individuals.
So, good for business and good for community—compassion. If you know of another local business that highlights compassionate values in their business model—please introduce us!
