The outermost level – the macro level – is where employees arrive once the personal and familial are stabilized. At this level, our employees’ personal health and safety is accounted for, as is that of their family members. This allows them to think outside the scope of themselves and their homes, and into the communities in which they live.
At this level, they are taught to think about the physical needs of their communities. What problems does the community currently face, and how can they be part of the solution? For instance, is there a problem with trash in the streets? Is there a way to lead discussions about littering with neighbors to create awareness and collective action to solve the litter issue? What are some creative ways to do this?
Our human development manager works with the employees to identify community threats, brainstorm possible solutions, and empower them in their leadership skills to initiate and advocate for positive change.
