The importance of agility and responsiveness in retail places in order to create resilient communities

Now more than ever we must help others in order to help ourselves. Revo created The Social Value Framework to assist the retail property community to quantify the value of things important to a business and community that are not commonly measured in the same way financial value is. This is to create positive social value, local and long-standing partnerships with local authorities, other businesses, charities or educational institutes.


The Community Engagement and Social Value Webinars, delivered by Revo’s Community Engagement Group have been formed to give our members the opportunity to engage with each other and discuss how best to implement our framework within their business structure and strategy.


Our next CEWG webinar will look at the importance of agility and responsiveness in retail places in order to create resilient communities, including how to handle and prepare for local lockdown, whilst balancing both economic and social needs, what does this mean for our communal retail hubs? And how to maximise the impact of support for the groups who need it most.
