Social impact is, unsurprisingly, having a moment. It’s a change that has been brewing — and studied — for more than a year.

  • In April 2020, a Porter Novelli survey showed that 75% of Americans said that how companies acted in response to the crisis would have a direct impact on whether they supported them in the future.
  • According to LinkedIn’s Purpose at Work Global Report, 73% of professionals who identify as “purpose-driven” are satisfied with their jobs.
  • 70% of employee donors surveyed in America’s Charities Snapshot Employee Donor Research say it is imperative or very important to work for an employer where mission and value align.
  • Additionally, The New York Times reports that employees who derive meaning from their work are three times more likely to stay at their organizations than those who do not.

Although there are numerous ways that companies can activate against their purpose-oriented missions, many choose to empower employees to give back to their communities.

Over the last year, some organizations have used employee volunteer events to bring new hires together in a low-pressure environment that grounds them in the company’s corporate social responsibility pillars.

For those who are trying to plan these events, however, the task can be daunting. How do you choose a nonprofit partner and know their needs? How do you create a space — location and activity — that feels safe for everyone?

To get answers to these questions and more, join America’s Charities and Give To Get on June 29 for our webinar, 5 Actionable Steps to Safely Unite Employees at In-Person Workplace Volunteer Events.
