Title:
Making Your Impact at Work: A Practical Guide to Changing the World From Inside Any Company

Abstract:
This guide is designed to empower current and aspiring social intrapreneurs to find ways to integrate sustainability into their day jobs. Building on the grassroot efforts started by its own employees, eBay partnered with Net Impact to develop Making Your Impact at Work as a way to empower current and aspiring social intrapreneurs to change their organizations one department or project at a time to ultimately influence the definition of sustainability jobs and how their company does business. Making Your Impact at Work summarizes key themes identified in the experiences of social intrapreneurs and provides a model for future changemakers to follow as they create a positive impact in their own corporate positions. The accompanying In-Depth Case Studies, available to Net Impact members, profile 15 social intrapreneurs representing 13 companies and a range of functions and industries, and provide details on the planning and execution of their corporate change projects. The companies represented include Accenture, Best Buy, Clorox, McDonald's, Google, among others.
