What is Social Value?

Social value means the sum total of all the positive effects deriving from an activity,  project, or intervention of any kind.

In terms of the construction industry, it is the additional value you add to a contract, over and above the direct economic impact that a  project has (i.e. the income/revenue it generates minus the cost of completing it). It is all those things you contribute to the community, the environment and your employees  while also delivering a contract for your client.

Thrive social value software allows you to easily capture and quantify all of your social value activities – and those of your supply chain – so that you can easily demonstrate your commitments and your results in bids and contracts time and time again.
