Globally, companies are integrating community investment programmes such as CSR, payroll giving, corporate citizenship into sustainable business strategy. The last decade has seen a significant rise, particularly in corporate volunteering i.e. businesses supporting and encouraging staff involvement in the community. In India specifically, the CSR law in 2013 catapulted businesses to re-look at their philanthropic and community initiatives as a way of doing business.
