We invited reporters from Justmeans.com to this year’s Client Summit in Chicago, where they captured interviews with administrators from many of the nation’s most effective corporate volunteer engagement programs.
In addition to corporate partners, VolunteerMatch also has some great partnerships with other nonprofit organizations that enable us to amplify our impact in the corporate responsibility and employee volunteering space. One of these partners is Global Giving.
In this interview with Jason Shaw from Justmeans, Donna Callejon, the Chief Business Officer at Global Giving, talks about why she attended the VolunteerMatch Client Summit and the advice that Global Giving has for companies working to engage employees in service.
Global Giving works to connect people to the causes and countries they care about. Individuals select projects they want to support, make a tax-deductible contribution, and get regular project updates – so they can see how your gift is making a difference. VolunteerMatch works with Global Giving to provide even more robust engagement opportunities for our corporate clients and their volunteers.
Donna attended the Summit to meet with partners and other members of the VolunteerMatch network, and to provide her insight as an expert in the volunteering field.
She spoke about trends that Global Giving is seeing in the corporate volunteering space, and how they should influence the ways in which companies manage their employee volunteer programs. For example:
- Let the passions of employees inform the direction of the program – don’t force them to care about something else.
- Connect with employees on the technology and social media platforms where they already are spending their time.
- Make all transactions and actions easy and fast.
