Best Practice Cafe Topic: “Creating Culture That Is Incentive Enough”
Companies often leverage programs like Dollars for Doers or initiatives like gift-matching to incentivize employee engagement, but what if it was possible to foster a corporate culture that inherently and consistently motivated employees to give and volunteer?
In this session at the 2013 VolunteerMatch Client Summit, Maureen Flynn from Changing Our World with help participants explore practical strategies for embedding employee engagement into their company’s DNA. We’ll discuss what it takes to leverage that engagement as a tool to develop talent, build loyalty, and increase satisfaction among colleagues. The audience will leave with an understanding of how to formalize their program, empower their people, set and communicate goals, and gain buy-in from key influencers.
Jessica Hubbard and Annalisa Amicangelo from VolunteerMatch client Houghton Mifflin Harcourt will join Maureen in leading the discussion.
