VolunteerMatch Summit Insights: All Jobs Should Have Purpose

At the 2015 VolunteerMatch Summit, held December 1-2 in Oakland, CA, we learned from corporate social responsibility experts about engaging corporate volunteers and partnering with nonprofits. In this series of blog posts, we’ll share with you the valuable insights offered at sessions and by speakers. Up today: Bea Boccalandro, Founder & President , VeraWorks.

Bea Boccalandro has a vision. That vision is that no matter what you’re good at, what career path you choose, or what job you hold, you can contribute to a cause in a meaningful way. You can feel fulfilled. It’s called job purposing. Hear Bea talk about it in the below video, as well as why she thinks the 2015 VolunteerMatch Summit is a “petri dish for innovation.”

 

“We get rid of this dividing line, and every job at any company doing anything, whether it’s looking at financial statements, or whether it’s grounds keeping, makes a meaningful difference for a societal cause on a regular basis.” -Bea Boccalandro
