Category: Giving Back
Employees want to work for organizations that give back to the community. In fact, 61% of workers say that a company’s commitment to the community would likely be a factor when choosing between two potential jobs with the same location, responsibilities, pay, and benefits. In addition to improving morale and ethical behaviors in the workplace, corporate giving also boosts employee engagement, productivity, trust, and collaboration. Studies show that companies with highly engaged employees are 21% more profitable.
No doubt you’ve heard of the Butterfly Effect. In simple terms, this means that a small act can create a major impact. That’s how we like to think of Make a Difference Day. On October 22, 2022, people around the country (and even the world) will commit to volunteer work, acts of kindness, mentorship, and more.
The holiday season is fast approaching, and with it comes the opportunity to help those in need and give back to the community. This is also a great opportunity for you to show your gratitude to those who have dedicated so much of their time and effort to furthering the success of your organization in the past year.
Come to the end of the year, it’s time to take a look back and reflect on your company’s successes – and celebrate your team. Whether you reached all of your smaller goals or made one large accomplishment this year, it deserves some recognition. The holidays are a perfect time to recognize achievements AND get in the spirit with a fun team celebration. Here are some examples of team celebration ideas and how your team can commemorate this year’s successes.
Volunteering year round is encouraged, but if you need that extra push there’s a special day dedicated specifically to doing good. Here we will outline what International Volunteer Day is, the importance and history behind it, and fun ways your team can join in and give back.
We all know the saying, “it’s better to give than to receive.” While we often think about that more during the holiday season, the fact is, it holds true 365 days per year. Your company is part of a broader community. Although sometimes it’s easy to forget that when due dates are looming and end-of-year expenses and reimbursements are due.
