I don’t know about you, but this year has flown by for our team. As organizations reorient to their professional landscape changing yet again, it’s a great time to audit your impact. So, jump into the last quarter of the year with a Social Impact Solutions needs assessment or impact report.
Auditing your impact is an essential part of succeeding in a changing world. Read on to learn why.
1. Stay Agile
Across virtually all industries, the businesses who stayed on their toes and pivoted to accommodate the changes of Covid-19 have been more resilient and more profitable. Absorb knowledge and adapt to your market by measuring the changing needs of your consumer. A Social Impact Solutions needs assessment will emphasize the current landscape in the context of your historical performance through a combination of data analysis and constituent surveying. If you have already been implementing these changes, an impact report can help you highlight your value and the progress your team has made over the past year.
2. Articulate Your Successes
Take a second to congratulate yourself – you made it through the last eighteen months! Not all organizations can say the same. You have worked hard to serve your mission in the face of global-scale obstructions. Your stakeholders should know how much you have accomplished. A needs assessment allows you to demonstrate how your constituents feel about your services and what they wish they had. Show this to your stakeholders alongside your social or economic impact report to tell the story of your resilience.
3. See The Gaps
We all have room to grow. A needs assessment helps you grow in the right direction. By identifying the greatest needs of your constituents and their identifying features and commonalities, you can see where programs are missing the mark. Leverage needs assessment data to fill the gaps in your organization.
4. Look to the Future
A completed impact report or needs assessment help you see how you are doing. You know what is going well, and where there is room for improvement. This means you’ve reached one of the most critical benefits of your risk assessment – looking forward. Find out what your constituent’s greatest needs are, and use this information to create a plan for the future.
5. Transform Ideas into Insight
By identifying your constituent needs and demographics, you better understand your market. You can turn your ideas of who you are impacting, and how you are impacting them, into action. Turn knowledge into power, and transform ideas into insight with an impact report.
