Party Buses Aren’t Just for the Younger Crowd

I heard these jams coming from a bus going down the road. They were right in front of me. I could hear base thumping and melodies. However, it wasn’t modern rock or hip hop or anything like that. It was early rock and roll music from the 1950s. The bus was from a Toronto party bus company, so I wondered what was going on inside. Tune after tune from that era was playing. I could hear it plain as day with my windows rolled down on that summer evening. They were going in the same direction as us, so I kept up with them to see if I could get a look inside.

I was on my way home with my wife. We both wondered who was in the bus, but it sure sounded like they were having a great time. We went for a few kilometers until we were passing a big restaurant known for hosting dinner parties for lager groups of people. That was where the bus turned in. I just had to pull in the parking lot to see who was in it. We waited a little distance away for the door to open. About four or five minutes after pulling in, the door opened up and old ladies started pouring out of the bus. » Read more: Party Buses Aren’t Just for the Younger Crowd

A Party Bus Rental is the Best Idea

When I asked my sister if she wanted to go to the theater to watch a Christmas play with me, she thought it was a great idea. She asked if we should invite our cousin, who asked if she could bring her children, who wanted to bring some friends. By the time we were done, there were over 20 of us wanting to go, so we decided to just make a really fun day out of it. The first thing I did was go online to see how much a Toronto party bus rental would cost all of us.

I knew that it would be a lot more fun if we could all manage to go together, especially since we added a few other stops to the day. We were not only going to the theater, but we also planned a bit of shopping as well as a nice meal before the show. We also figured we would stop and grab a small bite to eat after the show too, on our way home. Since there were so many stops, we knew that it would be hard to make sure that we all stayed together if we took several cars.

I was really happy when I saw that the price was extremely affordable if we all chipped in for it together. We would actually end up spending a lot more on our tickets and meals, so we decided to go ahead and book the party bus. We all decided to meet at my sister’s house since she is centrally located. That way, we could all just board the bus together and get started on having the fun we knew we would be having. I have a feeling that this is going to become an annual tradition, and hopefully there will be even more with us next time!

Corporate Social Responsibility – An Essential Business Strategy

It is thus advisable that corporations proactively engage in CSR from their very first days so that they can hope to induce customer satisfaction, reduce employee turnover and in the process improve reputation.

It is intrinsic to the development policy of a company that their employees stay motivated in order to be able to give their best in all situations. The motivation of a single employee results from the combination of many different processes. Certain theories in organizational behavior talks about how psychological rewards are helpful in triggering positive attitude in employees. There are certain factors which add to that and they include measurement of organizational justice and self-esteem which helps improve the behaviors and actions of an organization, only when its actions are perceived as fair and just. The impact would be highly positive, as employees would be motivated to show greater involvement towards work. The immediate results would include organizational citizenship, job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Fortune magazine has guaranteed this move as one of the prime reason behind the dramatic reduction of quit rate by 25-30%.

Another very crucial role that CSR plays, is in influencing customer purchase decisions. Quality, price and brand image of a product are three common factors that determines the choices of customers, from an organization’s point of view. However, CSR forms a very important contributor and motivator towards improving these decisions, but is commonly overlooked because it does not provide instant results. Starbucks today is one of the top league companies that has managed to set an example of a company that has been able to benefit hugely in the long run by doing things for the society in general. The company has managed to proliferate company growth and bring about shareholder value improvement. Even when the prices of coffee was falling all over, Starbucks continue to enjoyed popularity among people even when they introduced a 1% hike in their coffee prices. Even though people would be paying more than average coffee prices, they would continue visiting Starbucks at an average of 18 times in a month. This shows that simply through its levelled up CSR, a company can take its business to great heights.

Governance, citizenship and Workplace are essentially three of the seven dimensions that CSR comprises of. It is shown that a person’s opinion about a company, depends by a large percentage on the CSR policy that a company adopts. CSR mainly preaches about the reliability and honesty of a company. The more a company puts effort to stabilize its social impact, the better and more positive idea people gets about its brand image as well as its functioning.

CSR mainly advocates the policies of a business, who its targets, what are its beliefs and how it chooses to initiate its growth. Since, a customer’s willingness to spend on the services and products of a company relies on the CSR activities that the company launches, both start-up as well as existing business should focus well on the sincerity of the CSR motives of the company. So, keep an eye on your CSR activities and their motives, to improve the trust value of your brand name.
