All across the country, today’s most innovative businesses are using the arts to help them meet some of their most difficult and vital objectives. And according to Deloitte’s 2015 Human Capital Trends Report, “87% of organizations cite culture and engagement as one of their top challenges.” By partnering with arts organizations, companies can provide employees with innovative opportunities for growth and development, which can in turn have positive effects on engagement, morale, retention, and performance.
In this webinar with Jordan Shue of Americans for the Arts, you will learn the many reasons why the arts are a powerful driver of employee engagement; how companies, artists, and arts groups are partnering with businesses around the country through skills-based volunteering with the arts, employee art shows, community team-building art projects, and more; and you’ll be inspired to partner with the arts to engage your own employees!
