ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 20, 2017 /3BL Media/ – Charities@Work and ACCP announced a joint initiative today, building on one of the premier employee engagement events, the annual Charities@Work Summit. The Charities@Work principals—America’s Charities, Community Health Charities, EarthShare and Global Impact—in collaboration with ACCP, unveiled the 2017 Summit on Employee Engagement in Corporate Citizenship, which will take place on June 29, 2017, at the Guardian Life Insurance Company headquarters in New York City. This joint initiative between Charities@Work, a network of organizations that bridges the corporate and nonprofit sectors in order to achieve greater social impact, and ACCP, the sole membership-based organization chartered to champion the Corporate Citizenship professional, brings their collective expertise on cross-sector collaboration and corporate citizenship to this new event that focuses on successfully engaging employees to achieve greater social and business impact.

“We believe that collectively this joint initiative achieves more reach and has greater opportunity to create valuable linkages between the corporate and nonprofit sectors concentrated on employee engagement,” said Scott Jackson, President and CEO at Global Impact and Chair of the Charities@Work alliance. “Creating these linkages will be key to bringing corporations and their employees together with other sectors to support initiatives that achieve corporate ROI and social impact, such as the Sustainable Development Goals that are now the guiding framework for how to achieve a better world for all.”

The theme for this year’s conference is “The Apex of Engagement” and it will bring together CSR practitioners and other stakeholders to share the latest advances and thinking on employee engagement within the context of corporate citizenship. The Summit on Employee Engagement in Corporate Citizenship, presented by Charities@Work and ACCP, creates a space for corporate professionals focused on employee engagement, corporate citizenship, CSR, and employee giving and engagement to discuss challenges and seek solutions across these practices.

“For the past 15 years, the Charities@Work partnership has been a recognized convener of  companies and other stakeholders interested in learning best practices in Employee Engagement,” said Mark W. Shamley, President and CEO of ACCP. “ACCP is excited to help steer the evolution of this event as it grows to explore how employees, the companies they work for, and communities collaborate for business and social impact.”
