It’s powerful when the mission of investors is aligned with the mission of the company they invest in. We all know what too often happens when there isn’t mission alignment between investors and companies. Short-term financial return becomes more important than the company mission or than what the company can realistically achieve even with the best management practices. This is how the term “vulture capitalists” came to be, assigned to some venture capitalists and even to some “angel” investors.

Study after study has shown a distinct correlation between a harmonious workplace and company profits, states Peter J. Frost in his book, Toxic Emotions at Work (Harvard Business School Press).
HeartMath, a leading stress research organization, has conducted stress and performance research and assessments in companies for the past 15 years. “We have found that employee attitudes are related to organizational culture and culture is created and communicated by the CEO and top executives. Often this communication is nonverbal, in attitudes and behaviors as well as decisions. It’s at the CEO level that change has to start. We learned that to achieve these kinds of results in hospital systems the CEO has to participate in the program,” says HeartMath LLC President and CEO Bruce Cryer.

Health is an important but often overlooked component of corporate social responsibility (CSR). With the increasing emotional stress levels of individuals and businesses and rising health care costs, health needs to become a key metric of social responsibility and in GIIRS metrics.
It seems obvious that sustainability has to include sustainable health. It’s time for socially responsible companies to acknowledge the emotional and physical health of their employees as a critical metric to their success. Employee wellness leads to corporate health, which leads to better returns for companies.

April is National Stress Awareness Month and too often many of us separate our personal stress levels from our social or environmental mission. We may think that chronic stress in the name of mission is a worthwhile sacrifice. But it’s easy to see in others how today's increasing stress levels both create dysfunction and compromise effectiveness. If we are personally and socially responsible, we cannot ignore our own stress and health.
One of the things that impressed me about the people at RSF Social Finance is their extraordinary care for their mission and for the people and organizations with whom they work. Equally compelling is their care for themselves and each other. You can feel the culture of care when you step into their offices.
