The first step to becoming Good For Michigan is taking the Quick Impact Assessment, a free online tool that helps businesses measure their social, environmental, and economic impact.
We encourage businesses to retake the assessment every year to renew their commitment to Good for Michigan. This helps us maintain a strong, authentic brand and assures your customers they are supporting a business committed to improving year after year. We believe it’s important for businesses to measure their progress. Retaking the QIA each year can offer a good pulse check on the positive impact you’re making on employees, local communities and the environment.
If you haven’t retaken the QIA yet, here are some reasons to dive back into the assessment and measure your impact.
Renew your commitment to Good For Michigan
To continue participation in Good For Michigan, businesses must retake the QIA every year. Retaking the assessment is an opportunity to measure your impact over the last year and compare your results to when you first joined Good For Michigan. We encourage all of our Good For Michigan businesses to retake the assessment year after year so you can continue to celebrate progress and take your impact to the next level!
Amplify your impact
Many businesses use their QIA results to create a roadmap for making a positive impact in these areas and creating or updating their business plan. After retaking the assessment, you may find you excelled in one impact area while another area may need more work. If that’s the case, this can be an opportunity to refresh your business plan and set goals for the upcoming year.
Be recognized at the Good For Michigan Awards in March 2019!
During the 2019 Good For Michigan Awards, we will recognize businesses under a new category: “Most Improved Business.” This category celebrates businesses for the progress they’ve made on their most recent QIA results over the previous year. If you would like to be considered in this category for the 2019 awards, the deadline to retake the QIA is Dec. 1, 2018.
While it might seem daunting to retake the assessment again, you will likely be pleasantly surprised by your results! We are here to help you measure your progress and provide resources that help you grow your impact. If you have questions about retaking the QIA, please drop us a line or give us a call at (616) 808-3788.
