Compendium of data, research, and case studies illustrates innovations in private sector’s continuous efforts to solve the world’s most pressing problems
NEW YORK, December 20, 2018 /3BL Media/— To capture the sum of the social investments and impact made by businesses around the world, CECP has released the year-end edition of Investing in Society, the industry’s annual report providing a comprehensive look back at the biggest trends and insights that defined the year.
Leading companies are laser-focused on corporate purpose. They explore what their purpose is and how it translates to their people and community and bring that purpose to life through intentional practices and strategies. They use a human-centered lens for all business operations because it helps them see around corners and delivers a competitive edge. All this leads to a future-forward outlook that enables a long-term view.
Today's employees are expecting a greater sense of purpose in the workplace. In fact, 83% of Millennials say they would be more loyal to their employer when they feel they can make a difference on social and environmental issues at work.
Your CSR program is an ideal way to empower employees to do more good through charitable giving and volunteering, but what if there was something that could drive even more impact?
Good news! You can engage even more people in your program when you give them opportunities to take small, positive actions both in and out of the workplace.
Each year at Benevity, just before the biggest giving months of the year, we release data showing the top charitable causes that enterprise companies and their people are supporting through our platform… and the results are in!
Last year, we reported a major shift in giving, with employees rapidly responding to the issues that matter to them. In 2018, we continue to see the momentum flourish. Find out the top 10 charitable causes corporations are supporting and what factors are driving a shift in giving from the bottom up.
Here are 3 things companies are doing about it this charitable season.
Last year, we saw seismic shifts in the causes people supported as we also crossed the $400 billion giving mark for the first time. We saw more people and companies give more than ever before, which is heartening in what has felt like a time of tension, crisis and unprecedented natural and “man-made” disasters.
Yet despite these seemingly huge numbers, most Americans are only half as charitable as they intend.
More companies are taking an employee-centric approach to their CSR programs with three key social impact trends in mind that help engage more people, maximize their impact and foster compelling, purpose-driven workplace cultures.
Check out our infographic to find out what these three trends are and how you can leverage them to do even more good this charitable season and beyond.
