The Brand Series Webinar: How Are Major Brands Engaging Employees in CSR?

What's the True Impact of your Employee Volunteering program?
Summary: 

Retail brands like Target are a huge supplier of jobs, a middle-house for the goods of signature suppliers, an expected neighbor within the American mall landscape, and at some level, maturing corporate citizens.  A robust corporate citizenship prowess addresses a number of factors:  sustainability practices, supply chain ethics, philanthropy, workplace giving, employee volunteering, and more. Many large retail companies have initiatives of note that seek to address these areas.  But, for purposes of this article, here’s the question: are the icons of retail intentionally engaging their employees in their citizenship endeavors?  And, if so, what are they doing?  What follows is not a report card on overall citizenship, but rather a deeper dive into each one’s strategy for engaging their employees in the citizenship initiatives surrounding employee volunteering and workplace giving.

If you’d like to engage in a dialogue about how to use this kind of data to create a compelling story that will engage your stakeholders and your employees, join us for a 15 minute webinar on October 16 at 12pm EST.

In this webinar, Farron Levy of True Impact and Chris Jarvis of Realized Worth will discuss the difference between activities and impacts - and how to talk about your program in a way that goes beyond numbers.
