Community Investment Makes Cents for Businesses

For the company of tomorrow - even the largest, global corporations - success will be driven by what they do in their local communities. Audible will speak to the need for companies to redress social inequality and support resilient communities - especially during COVID - through the lens of its hometown Newark, NJ, where the company has fought to address food insecurity, create opportunities for entrepreneurs, and support the local economy. There are tangible benefits for businesses that invest in the communities where they operate, including creating a sustainable pipeline of talent, nurturing entrepreneurs and investors, and improving employee satisfaction. By helping their hometowns thrive, companies will see their bottom line rise.
