The culture around employee giving and engagement is dynamic. That’s appropriate, given how diverse employees are, from the causes they want to support, to the ways in which they want to support those causes, to the methods they use to share their experiences – it’s a vast and ever-changing landscape. That’s why it’s so important that we ask employee donors what they want when it comes to charitable giving or volunteering their time or skills. And that’s why it’s equally critical that employers listen to their employees and make improvements based on that learning.
