On May 16, 2013, winners of the 2013 VolunteerMatch Corporate Volunteer Awards will be announced at our annual VolunteerMatch Client Summit in New York City, NY. In this series of posts, we’ll introduce you to people and ideas behind the ten most effective employee volunteer programs in our family of corporate clients compared against our annual benchmarks.
This year, we are pleased to once again recognize Old National Bank as a Finalist for Employee Volunteer Program of the Year in our Small and Medium Sized Business category. The Evansville, Indiana-based company may repeat as winner in 2013 for its accomplishments last year.
According to program manager Amy Casavant, the company’s Volunteer Flex Time, Community Team grants, and formal recognition programs have made the difference — inspiring more than 54 total hours of service per participating volunteer.
Through its “ONe Community” program Old National Bank mixes its broad focus areas of education, economic development, health and human services, and arts and culture with a special focus on mentoring and financial literacy programs. In addition, the company also inspires employees to tap the entire VolunteerMatch network for ways to give.
Among the company’s many featured volunteer opportunities for its associates, a few standouts include one-on-one coaching with local community college students, coaching for families receiving a new home through Habitat for Humanity, group sessions for military service members and their families, and classroom training for kindergarten through high school students in partnership with Junior Achievement.
Old National Bank joins 1st Source Bank, City National Bank, NV Energy and Union Bank as our Small and Medium Sized corporate finalists.
Old National Bank’s top accomplishments in 2012 include:
- 61% of Old National associates entered over 93,000 volunteer hours, which averaged to 54.1 hours per volunteer.
- Associates gave over 12,000 hours of service on the boards of over 550 non-profit organizations in Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky
- Over 17,300 individuals were served through financial literacy programs lead by Old National associates.
We are honored to support Old National Bank’s outstanding volunteer program. Congratulations to the team and all Old National Bank employees!
