The new clients—which include World Bank Group, Atlassian, Adobe, Western Union Foundation and a host of others—bring more than one million additional employee users into the Benevity network.
As corporations continue to expand their purpose to be more inclusive of actions that benefit employees, customers, the environment and society at large, they are turning to Benevity for help scaling their CSR, employee engagement and community investment programs. Of note, Benevity has seen a 29 percent uptick in the number of new clients in the finance and technology sectors this year.
