This morning I heard about an interesting proposal Burger King made to a non-profit foundation in Miami. BK invited the non-profit to host a team building exercise for BK executives where these execs would work on a social project of the non-profit.
I like this idea:
- The non-profit is paid to host the event
- A project of the non-profit is completed sooner because of the extra labor from the executives
- For-profit execs get first hand knowledge of social projects and non-profit foundations
Perhaps the ideal outcome, the executives could lobby for their corporation to provide ongoing financial support to the non-profit and give executives paid time off to work on projects.
