When Joyya commit's to participating in a community, we look at how our business can make a positive impact at both an individual and communal level. While our charitable work focuses on capacity building in the community, our business intends to an Economic Engine for transformation
The 4 Components of Economic Impact
We want our business to focus on doing what businesses can do unique well. Our impact areas are split into 4 categories. For each category, we look at certain indicators to help us assess our level of impact.
1) Provide Economic Stability
- Increase the average wage level for our staff
- Increase the number of jobs we offer
- Increase the entry-level wage for the lowest level job
2) Realize Economic Potential
- Increase internal promotion
- Facilitate successful external job placements
- Develop deep professional training for ALL staff
+ Joyya ensures that every staff member (regardless of seniority) has at least 2-hours each week towards personal development and training
3) Create an Economic Canopy
- Support local businesses in our procurement
- Invest time, training and funds in local small businesses
- Help shape and improve the economic identity of a community
4) Donate Developmental Assistance
- Invest in measuring the economic health of a community
- Fund developmental projects in a community
- Donate time and talent to projects in our community.
As we grow, we will look to publish both baseline and year-over-year performance against each of these areas for each community in which we operate.
