Do you have a hard time getting your employees engaged with the community? Sure, they work for a nonprofit and help your organization pursue its mission every day. But what about all of the other nonprofits that are desperate for volunteers? Here are five simple steps to encourage and increase volunteer activity in your office.
On Tuesday, June 26th at 2pm ET/ 11am PT, VolunteerMatch hosted a free webinar about how purpose and corporate social responsibility are different, and where they overlap. Attendees learned how to create a purpose-driven CSR and volunteer program, and heard examples of companies already doing it successfully. Miss the webinar? Watch the recording here.
How do you balance purpose and corporate responsibility? And how do directives from leadership fit into your employee volunteer program goals? Last (but certainly not least), how do you create a program that’s inclusive of employee wants?
If this feels like a lot to juggle, you’re not alone.
On May 29, 2018, the team at VolunteerMatch walked through:
Why it’s important to give your employees choice in your volunteer program, how to balance employee choice with company-sponsored cause areas, how the VolunteerMatch Network connects employees with causes that are meaningful to them, and how VolunteerMatch’s custom integrations can serve the interests of both your company and its individual employees, while saving you time and money.

Pro bono is growing and evolving. It provides more and more opportunities for employees to stretch their skills, and for nonprofits to strengthen their options. This trend is backed by LBG Associates’ and LBG Research Institute’s latest research report, “Pro Bono Today: What’s New, What’s Working.”
