Rotary Hutt City (RHC) has launched an innovative form of relationship for businesses and other organizations, known as ROTABIZ. This initiative aims to bring together RHC, one of 46,000 + Rotary clubs worldwide working to bring about change in our communities, and organizations looking for ways that they and their staff can participate in doing good in Hutt City.
At a recent ROTABIZ event, a founding corporate member described its motivation for participation in the following terms:
"We had found it a challenge to identify worthwhile projects that made a real difference in our community. Rotary is a footprint to many effective projects.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not just a buzz word. Now more than any other time, it is likely that a strategy for CSR is a requirement when tendering on larger contractual work. A ROTABIZ - Business for good - membership provides access to all of Rotary projects and offers community engagement in a fun and informal way, staff development through their involvement in projects and promises business relationships that potentially improve “the bottom line”.
There is nothing like a bunch of like minded companies - a coalition of the willing- getting together to improve our community and at the same time creating business opportunities between us.
The ROTABIZ website ( for Corporate members allows users to communicate in real time. It's also great for reporting on new business opportunities which benefit other ROTABIZ members.
Lastly, there are personal development opportunities which Rotary offers our young leaders through youth development programs."
