Being a Cisco employee luckily comes with many amazing perks for all staff to use throughout the year. In particular, a Cisco favourite is our ‘Give Back Days’ – we receive 40 hours each year where we can shut the computer lid, turn off emails, and come together as a team to work on projects close to our hears, and most importantly; giving back to our local communities. (Cisco even gave us an additional 10 hours this year!)

When Volunteering is Too Easy: Better Ways to Engage and Activate Employee Volunteers

Blog

This year more than most, everyone is terrified to ask their employees to do anything beyond the basics of their jobs. They’re busy, they’re exhausted, they just can’t. “We shouldn’t ask our employees to do more right now. They just don’t have time.” The solution? Just make it easier.

It’s the only way to meet them where they are without canceling volunteering altogether. Right?
