Strategies for Increasing Employee Engagement with Volunteering

Watch now on-demand.

The 2021 Industry Report showed that the challenges of 2020 had an impact on employee participation in volunteering. Employees may have been hesitant to volunteer or had less opportunities to volunteer with nearly all-person volunteering coming to a halt for a period of that year. How can companies get their volunteer engagement rate back up? 

This webinar will review an analysis of employee engagement trends across companies with 0 – 100,000+ employees from the latest YourCause CSR Industry Report. Nancy Slezak, Director of Social Impact at WeHero will present strategies for increasing employee engagement and Haley Gross, Customer Success Manager at Blackbaud will present examples of how to implement some of those strategies using CSRconnect. 

Key Topics:

  • Virtual volunteering is here to stay
  • By incorporating empathy in volunteer experiences, volunteer engagement will be enhanced
  • Skills-Based Volunteering will be a staple in volunteer programs  
  • Volunteer strategies that align with business purpose and incorporate employee feedback will significantly increase impact

This event is open to anyone looking for new and unique ways to connect with employees as the strategies presented can be applied with or without the tools in CSRconnect. This webinar will be recorded and available on-demand to all registrants.
