Corporate Partnerships and Sponsorship
Make Hop Skip and Jump your chosen charity and benefit from being a business of choice for your customers and employees.
“88% of consumers said they were more likely to buy from a company that supports and engages in activities to improve society”.
Consumers increasingly don’t accept unethical business practices or organisations who act irresponsibly. Advances in social media (giving everyone a voice) mean that negative or destructive practices quickly fuel conversations online. Organisations are accountable for their actions like never before.
