Why does social value matter?


Buyers Want Partners with a Social Consience

Buyers (aka the client) have become more savvy and want more value for the money they spend with your company. Giving back shows them you care about their problems at a local level and how you can support their communities.


It’s a Legal Requirement in the UK Public Sector 

When the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 was created, it placed an obligation on buyers to ensure the money they spent delivered more on a social, economic and environmental front.  That’s why you see social value in every bid these days.


Doing Good is the New Way of Doing Business

It’s not enough to do a service well and have a good price. Buyers and the end customer you work for want to know you help others; they like buying from and working with people with the ‘feel good factor.’  Considering social value is win:win.
