COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has sparked a radical rethink in how we do business. Many businesses have risen to the challenge supporting their employees and communities to help weather the storm. Learn about the positive ways organisations have responded to the pandemic in our COVID-19 Responsible Business Stories.

Business in the Community (BITC) is asking organisations to seize the opportunity and #BuildBackResponsibly. We set out new priorities for how business can deliver the change that is needed for society and the planet. Work with us and make a difference.
In response to the pandemic BITC launched the National Business Response Network (NBRN) to identify community needs across the UK and match them to the right business support. Through BITC’s vast regional and local connections and leaders, we are able to identify national and local community needs. The network then connects businesses who have the resources to help.
