Happy Social Enterprise Day from Cosmic

15th November 2012

Today is nationally being recognised at Social Enterprise Day with a range of events around the UK to celebrate the wonderful scale and models of social enterprise today. What a brilliant time to consider how important social enterprise has become and to look forward to much more in the future - including plenty of digital inclusion work from Cosmic!

Cosmic also wants to use the opportunity to encourage lots more organisations to sign-up for the Social Enterprise Mark - it provides the credibility and clarity we all need to prove how we operate as real social enterprises. It provides suppliers and customers alike with the understanding that they are trading with a better type of business!

And to encourage plenty more people to consider working in Social Enterprise - its a brilliant career choice. The team here is celebrating by spending some time considering why it feels great to work in social enterprise, and we wanted to share those thoughts - so here goes -

"Its great working in social enterprise because …. it’s great to feel part of a bigger movement that could change the way we do business, for good.”

“it’s about working with people who have a sense of social value and a belief in making their work about more than just earning a wage and more about the value that they can bring to something.
