It would take far too much time and text to even try to tackle the complex subject of talent acquisition through the ages.
It is, however, safe to say that there have always been certain industries where aggressive and structured talent acquisition has been a must. There have always been jobs only a limited number of people could do and many employers wanted to get them on board.
We noticed our client Prometheus Real Estate Group doing some pretty incredible stuff with their volunteer program (known as Our Front POrCH), including their annual “POrCH Challenge”. So, we caught up with Savannah Van Voorhis, Reputation & Cause Marketing Manager at Prometheus and asked her to share what makes Our Front POrCH shine.
Sam likes to volunteer with his hands. It gives his mind a break from his mentally demanding job. Jasmine prefers to use her specialized coding skills to volunteer. Otherwise, she feels her time volunteering is misspent. And Lena wants an opportunity to reconnect with colleagues she doesn’t see every day, and a chance to chat with the new faces around the office.
Team-building is a great reason to volunteer. Employees who volunteer together have the opportunity to form closer bonds. At larger companies, a corporate volunteer event might be an employees’ first interaction with a co-worker from a different team or department.
