Business and social obligations
Business and social obligations are not something most For Profit Organisations mention in the same sentence.
Langmobile has been operating for 12 years and we believe a great deal of our success stems from the fact that we know business and social obligations go hand in hand.
As a business dedicated to children, it was vital to us to incorporate a social mission into our business goals.
The marriage of business and social obligations is giving back.
Langmobile defines it’s Social and Community obligations in this mission statement:
To operate our company in a way that actively recognizes the central role that business plays in the community, by initiating innovative ways to improve the quality of life locally and globally. Making an investment in children, our environment and our world.
Langmobile is an active member of the Saint Lambert community. We support our fellow entrepreneurs and non profit organisations in our community. We contribute to the quality of life and community services in Saint Lambert.
It is our belief that a strong community creates a strong society. When and where our children are involved we must be invested!
Business and social obligations, you can not have one with out the other.
Langmobile was created by social entrepreneurs and we are proud of it.

The interests of a social entrepreneur can manifest through their companies business mission or through the approach of simply giving back and being dedicated to coupling Business and social obligations.

Giving back is our key to success. We have been extremely fortunate in life and believe we all have a social responsibility to get involved by giving back.
