Why Community Outreach is So Important
At MH Williams Construction, we enjoy being involved in our community. We participate in community outreach projects whenever possible and encourage our employees to take part in these projects as well. However, many companies ask us why community outreach is so important. Here are a few of the reasons why community outreach is something our company firmly believes in.
Helps to Give Back to the Community
First and foremost, community outreach gives back to the community. Our team is comprised of general contractors, construction managers and engineers. When the community needs these services to help build a building for children, vets or people who have lost so much in their lives, we believe it is our duty to step in and help however we can. The community has done so much in helping to make our business a success. We have been a part of building so many amazing buildings and projects in this area. And without the community, we would be nothing. As such, when given the opportunity to help out for a great cause in the community, we do so.
Helps to Get Your Business Name Out There
Another benefit to community outreach is that it helps to get our business’ name out there. While doing community outreach services, we sometimes work with other contractors or professionals who have never heard of us before. The next time they need our services, they may remember the contractor they worked on a community outreach project with and turn to us. Likewise, we are able to network with other companies during community outreach that we can partner with on projects. This includes sub-contractors, like plumbers and electricians, or people who have donated supplies to construction project. This helps us choose vendors for our next construction project. We remember the companies and contractors who gave back and who we have had the opportunity to work with. This type of networking allows us to find the great contractors in the industry and the ones who also have the mentality of giving back to the community. It winds up being a win-win for all of the involved parties.
May Help to Boost Business
Many businesses are able to boost their business thanks to community outreach. If consumers know that your business is taking some of its profits and giving back, they may lean towards hiring you over another business. Consumers like to feel good about themselves and knowing that they are helping others just by selecting one business over another gives them this feel good moment. Always advertise where profits will go or what projects your business is involved in to see a potential boost to your business based on this. You can see a list of community outreach projects we are involved with on our website.
Helps to Influence the Next Wave of Construction Specialists
The last benefit to community outreach is that it allows us to help influence the next wave of construction specialists. During community outreach events, we often work with children. And children are impressionable. What you teach them at this age can carry with them through life. At this stage in life, they may see exactly what you job you are doing, and it may be the seed that gets planted in their mind that they want to grow up and be a construction manager or work in the construction industry. It also helps plant the idea in their mind of community service and outreach. This way, when they are older and successful, they will remember the importance of giving back to the community. Being able to work with young children helps to influence the future.
