In the US a new partnership to promote socially responsible career choices has been launched by the Boston College Centre for Corporate Citizenship and JustMeans, a new social media platform for corporate responsibility.
The partnership will provide organisations, including the 350 companies that compose the membership of the Boston College Centre, a new recruitment tool to link employers with candidates committed to advancing social change through their jobs.
The web site, www.justmeans.com, will also provide content and programming around employee engagement and citizenship for companies that register.
JustMeans is a new social media platform that provides news, jobs, and networks for people who want to create change. The site will provide hundreds of organisations and corporations with access to outstanding candidates for a range of jobs from experienced-level positions to intern opportunities.
Martin Smith, CEO and founder of JustMeans says the goal is to make it easier for people to understand the impact of their work and find careers in companies that want to have a positive impact on the world.
Each JustMeans member company will be provided a citizenship homepage to present a coherent picture of its commitment to social responsibility and the tools to network employees and post job opportunities, reports, videos, blogs, and articles.
A partnership between JustMeans and the Boston College Centre for Corporate Citizenship will complement the Centre’s current research, training, and member services.
JustMeans and the Centre for Corporate Citizenship hope to grow the platform to one million individual users and 20,000 recruiting companies within two years.
The Boston College Centre for Corporate Citizenship is a membership-based research organization committed to helping businesses leverages their social, economic and human assets for the good of society.
JustMeans, the first social media platform for the worlds of CSR and Sustainability, provides news, jobs, and networks for people who create social change.
