On November 9, 2017, we partnered with Changing Our World to share tips for aligning your corporate volunteer program with your employees\' interests. As it turns out, people volunteer for reasons that are uniquely personal to them.
Studies show that employees seek out companies that embody socially responsible values and provide an outlet for volunteering. You’ve checked those boxes yet can’t seem to get your employees to participate in your volunteer program. On Thursday, November 9, 2017, at 2 pm ET/ 11 am PT, we will present solutions to this common, yet solvable, challenge.
We hear it time and time again from our friends in the corporate social responsibility (CSR) space: conferences and other gatherings are uniquely important to CSR professionals. One of the longest-running conferences in CSR, COMMIT!Forum, recognizes this challenge.
Sam likes to volunteer with his hands. It gives his mind a break from his mentally demanding job. Jasmine prefers to use her specialized coding skills to volunteer. Otherwise, she feels her time volunteering is misspent. And Lena wants an opportunity to reconnect with colleagues she doesn’t see every day, and a chance to chat with the new faces around the office.
No two employee volunteers are created equal. And that’s a good thing! But as a corporate volunteer program manager, pleasing everyone may seem like a daunting task. That’s why VolunteerMatch and Bright Funds are teaming up on a free webinar to fill you in on a little-known fact: engaging employees through unique volunteer opportunities are easier than you think!
VolunteerMatch is all about helping people connect to their passions. And we look forward to connecting with you at a conference this year! Check out this recap of where we have been so far in 2017, and where else we are planning to be the rest of the year.
How do you develop engaged leaders among your employees? You might be surprised to hear that one effective method is through your volunteer program.
