Jun. 12 /CSRwire/ - The 8thGlobal Pro Bono State of the Practice, presented by PYXERA Global, highlights the top five trends based on data collected from 26 companies, 63 percent of which belong to Fortune’s Global 500.
In addition to overall growth in the practice area, trends show companies are prioritizing social impact, aligning programming with corporate strategy, engaging more internal stakeholders, and increasing impact measurement to make the business case for Global Pro Bono. The State of the Practice also includes a practitioner’s guide for companies keen to pilot a program and ensure it has a foundation for success.
“Global Pro Bono is a powerful tool for companies to integrate purpose into employee experience at work and increase retention and overall employee fulfillment,” said Deirdre White, CEO, PYXERA Global. “The State of the Practice is important because it shows that Global Pro Bono can strategically support corporate strategy and create a sustainable social impact.”
Since 2010, the Global Pro Bono State of the Practice report, formerly called the International Corporate Volunteerism Benchmarking Survey, has delivered an overview of program formats, implementation methodologies, evaluation techniques, and best practices.
