Measuring the Impact of Volunteering and of Volunteers


Written by LBG Canada Relationship Manager, Jennifer Eldridge

Within LBG Canada, we have seen a steady rise in companies stating that they want to evaluate the employee experience, which is why we are incorporating volunteering measurement metrics into our soon to be launched Impact Measurement Framework.

Why Auditing is Sexy


The 2015 audit cycle is underway! Here’s a reminder of why community investment audits are sexy:

Building Standard of Practice in SROI


In November 2014, the Social Return on Investment (SROI) International Network merged with Social Impact Analysts Association (SIAA) to form Social Value International (SVI). This is an exciting development as the two organizations had strong visions of putting social value on the agendas of government, corporate, and social profit worlds internationally.

Top Community Investment Challenges


One key challenge currently being faced many companies working in community investment is communicating the value of community investment—both internally and externally. A barrier to effective communications is typically due to lack of understanding. In some cases, a lack of understanding occurs when community investment, marketing, and sponsorship overlap. While an integrated model has the potential for successful collaboration around community investment priorities, it is important that each area of activity be clearly distinguished from the other.

The New Company-Charity Partnership


Companies are becoming increasingly interested in community investment as a means to support value creation in communities they touch. Community investment can help establish mutually beneficial relationships between a company and its stakeholders, contribute toward long-term improvements in the quality of life for communities, and help create an environment conducive to private investment.
