How We Work With Corporations

Strategic Sourcing

In a perfect world, companies have suppliers that deliver on time, meet quality and quantity standards, and are economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable. IESC knows just how hard it is to pull this off in the real world. We excel at helping our clients do this in the most challenging places.

IESC can help you connect with small-holder farmers, growing manufacturers, and other suppliers in emerging economies and help you create reliable supply and distribution networks.

Employee Authenticity

Employees want to know that their job isn't just a job: it's a way to make the world a better place. Corporate volunteer programs have a direct impact on beneficiaries, but also improve morale company-wide. They are an excellent tool for the development and retention of top performing team members. Global engagement opportunities recognize achievement, take employees closer to suppliers and end users, and enable networking for an increasingly diverse and dispersed company.

IESC was founded on the idea of corporate volunteerism and has decades of experience designing and implementing international volunteer programs.

Good Corporate Citizenship

There is a power shift from the corporation to the consumer. Consumers increasingly want to interact with corporations that have a net positive impact. IESC has spent years fostering goodwill around the world. From Ahmedabad to Zanzibar, IESC is an organization recognized for our commitment to economic growth through private enterprise. We can help create the relationships, achieve net positive targets, and measure impact.

Doing good is good business.
