However, many firms question what they should prioritize when changing their help desks. Should the firm prioritize cost cutting or customer satisfaction?

Knowledge Management: Saving Time and Help Desk Resources

Knowledge Management Saves Time & Money

Most of us can relate to a time when we couldn't find the information we needed in a timely manner. Perhaps it related to fixing a broken printer, or more seriously, answering a client's question that could make or break a deal.

Resolving these issues is usually the charge of the help desk personnel, but when every issue is directed their way, the burden on these employees may become quite overwhelming.

TED Logo

In this TED Talk from an independently organized TEDx event in Philadelphia, Jay Coen Gilbert shares his vision to solve society's problems through B Corporations—corporations that meet specific social and environmental qualifications. B Corporations, or "B Corps" for short, are awarded membership in the B Corporation community by undergoing a rigorous certification process. This certification process is managed by a nonprofit organization, called B Lab, which Gilbert co-founded. Within this certification process of higher standards and accountability, Gilbert insists, lies a historic opportunity: to create a better world by harnessing the power of business.

A Closer Look at the Concept of CSR

Corporate Social Responsibility

As citizens, we are expected to uphold certain responsibilities to the communities in which we live. These basic responsibilities largely connect to the notion of ethics, which presses that one's own decisions have the power to influence the entire social system. Implying that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, this concept of synergy suggests that each individual plays a role in societal outcomes.

On a larger scale, the idea of corporate social responsibility holds that big businesses work under similar expectations to maintain such a social agreement. Often amassing extensive power over the economic, legal, and political arenas, corporations are responsible to take an active role in ensuring the well being of its employees, the community, and fundamentally, society as a whole.
