Employee volunteering is great for communities. But can it boost your business?

Research says “yes!” and leading companies  -- like Aetna, Citi and HP -- have demonstrated how helping employees contribute to societal causes drives business performance.

Whether you are a chief executive officer, a community relations professional or an HR manager, learn how well-designed employee volunteering not only helps society but increases employee engagement, attracts millennial talent, augments customer loyalty and otherwise supports business success.

Come if you have an established employee volunteer program! And, come if you have never heard of employee volunteering! You will leave with best practices, concrete tactics and validated tools for taking what you do at work to new heights.

 Session Objectives:

  • Learn what recent research has discovered about the power of employee volunteering to transform workplace culture, employee engagement, and business performance    
  • Learn best practices -- applied by both large and small businesses -- in employee volunteering that makes a meaningful contribution to both the community and the business
  • Leave with a actionable feasible next steps, and concrete tools, to take your employee volunteering to the next level of impact -- whether you are starting or already have a sophisticated employee volunteer program
