Does Community Investment Matter? - LBG Canada Data Series

Multimedia with summary

We ask ourselves this question all the time. While there are exceptions, at best community investment represents 1% of a company's pre-tax profit.

If "how much" is the only priority, some will consider community investment insignificant as compared to any company's total operating budget.

At LBG Canada, our priority is effectiveness, not how much companies give. Effectiveness can be measured by community partner impact, by employee and stakeholder engagement, or whether business benefits were achieved.

Employers: How Much Volunteer Time Is the "Right" Amount During the Work Day?

Multimedia with summary

More time to volunteer doesn't always equal more participation. Participation increases when employees have 1-2 volunteer days.

Executive champions, encouragement, celebrating impact - these features of world-class programs are more likely to increase participation than more or unlimited days.

Analytics show that more DwH time doesn't increase participation. It may lead to the opposite!

Executive champions, communications, celebrating impact - these features of world-class programs are more likely to increase participation than more or unlimited days.
