Measuring the Value of Volunteerism: Practical Techniques and ROI Benchmarking Results, with Farron Levy, True Impact

What can your company learn from the most comprehensive evaluation of the impact of employee volunteering ever? In this Best Practice Network webinar, Farron Levy, president of True Impact, will discuss the findings of the Volunteerism ROI Tracker initiative – a program sponsored by the Points of Light Institute and delivered by True Impact, a leading provider of web-based tools and support services for measuring corporate citizenship programs.

The initial results of the Volunteerism ROI Tracker are based on impact data collected from employee volunteer programs at 21 leading companies, including Boeing, Coca Cola, Deloitte, GE, Pfizer, and UPS.
