Employees looking to spend a long tenure with a company especially younger workers – are increasingly concerned about finding a company that gives back to the world, and that makes an effort to encourage employees to do so as well. They want to know that a certain amount of their time and effort is given directly back to their cities and to the world they live in.
As we find time and again in the business world of 2021, employee issues that could once be held at bay with some well-intended lip service are no longer as easy to solve for. Companies need to lay their CSR cards on the table and be willing to sacrifice some of their employees’ time and efforts on the clock to causes greater than simply succeeding monetarily as a company. Regardless of the industry, every company has employees with skills that can be lent to a charity or nonprofit for a good cause. With employee volunteering programs, the “everybody wins” feeling is genuine.
The companies below have all gotten attention for their robust employee volunteer programs, mostly for work at specific organizations that their employees have an actionable passion for. For nonprofit organizations, this donated elbow grease can be fundamentally more valuable than straight monetary donations.
