For over a decade, leading companies have worked to make their community engagement programs more strategic. In this post, VolunteeMatch President Greg Baldwin shares his thoughts on why so few have succeeded — until now.
How do you develop engaged leaders among your employees? One effective way is through a top-notch employee volunteer program. Join us for this free webinar on April 27, 2017 to learn how.
Our partners at Causecast are preparing for the next in their ongoing series of +IMPACT conferences, to be held in Washington DC on May 15th and 16th, 2017. The +IMPACT East Conference combines the flavor and community spirit of +IMPACT with hands-on, practical elements that will help workplace giving and volunteering program leaders and nonprofit leaders come together in new ways, both big and small, to create strategic impact during changing times.
If you have employees who volunteer either time or money to a worthy cause your business supports, you may find that they don’t always realize how much good their service is actually doing.
For nearly 20 years, VolunteerMatch has connected good people with good causes. From our launch in 1998 to date, we’ve grown to support a community of over 110,000 nonprofits, over 7,000,000 registered volunteers, and over 100 companies. Today, we’re the Web’s largest volunteer engagement network. To illustrate the reach of our network we created this “sweet” video.
According to Dale Carnegie Training, companies with engaged employees outperform those without by up to 202%. Surprising? It’s simple: when your employees aren’t engaged, they aren’t productive. But volunteer programs can bring people together, give them purpose in their work, instill pride in your company, and increase their conviction that your company is doing something worthwhile in the world.
The agreement will enable VolunteerMatch to continue to help even the smallest local nonprofit leverage LinkedIn’s massive professional network to find the skilled volunteers they need to support our kids, our environment, our communities and our future.
