Creating Diverse & Inclusive Business: The Power of Employee Volunteer Networks
Here’s a question I love asking companies: Why is your employee volunteer program important? We usually end up talking about indicators: The amount of resources, money, and time companies invest in developing and maintaining employee volunteering programs. The depth and breadth of business alignment and integration are another. High employee participation rates and access to consistent, measurable community impact data. These all indicate importance. But what about inclusion? Your employee volunteering program’s ability to help employees understand and bridge social and cultural divisions is a big indicator of importance.
So how do you make inclusivity part of your program?
