When it comes to recruiting employees, there are probably many ways your recruitment team helps prospective employees get to know your company and its culture. After all, company culture, ethics, and work environment all make up a big part of a candidate’s decision to join your team. However, there’s another area that has a huge impact on a candidate’s decision-making process, and it’s an area that many companies are focusing on more and more. We’re talking about social good.
What is the key to making your employee volunteering and giving programs scalable, measurable and meaningful? Best practices? Unlimited resources? Realized Worth’s Chris Jarvis suggests three shifts in perspective and intention that make all the difference:
In a rapidly changing world, the role of corporations in affecting social change is shifting.

In an increasingly digital and socially influenced world, branding is critical.

Late last year, our CEO, Angela Parker, had the opportunity to speak with author, podcaster, thought leader and advocate for people doing meaningful work; Dan Smolen. Together, they wrestled with ideas such as, “What draws companies to the idea of volunteering?” and, “How are companies responding to the mandate to go virtual?” Dan’s thought-provoking questions led Angela to some surprising and meaningful reflections. We hope they’ll do the same for you.
What if we were deeply committed to a world that worked for all? What if instead of simply honoring the legacy of those who came before us – the ones who struggled and fought for recognition of their most basic human rights – we took our efforts a step further and decided to become good ancestors ourselves?
2020 has been a year of realization. We realized how quickly tables can turn and how even the most resilient structures can come undone overnight. We struggled, succumbed at times, and persevered – only to emerge stronger, armed with a renewed set of skills, and more resilient than ever before. Albeit through the force of circumstances, we found new ways to live, work, and connect with one another.
