Transform employee volunteerism with free online course ‘Empathy in Motion: The Power of Employee Volunteering’
Companies across the globe are gatekeepers of a valuable experience for employees, providing support and resources for employees to take action and make a difference in the communities where they live and work.
As a corporate social responsibility leader you realize that providing volunteer opportunities and support can build morale, encourage team building, increase productivity and help to develop and build your company culture.
But what’s the best way to create or strengthen volunteer programs?
Having had the privilege to work with hundreds of enterprise companies — many of which are part of the Fortune 1000 — we're often asked about what works best when it comes to workplace giving programs. Companies want to know how to get the greatest social and business outcomes out of their programs and we want to help. The first and last thing to remember? The goal of your giving programs must be employee engagement. This may seem obvious, but it’s worth mentioning because many programs aren’t designed with this goal in mind.
A year can seem like a long time, especially when you’re in the ever-evolving world of corporate social responsibility and volunteerism.
