Ask Amplify Credit Union why it encourages and even rewards its employees for their volunteer work.
In fact, employees participating in employer-led volunteer programs tend to be happier, more loyal employees. These programs not only demonstrate civic responsibility, they often align with the company’s own mission and strategic objectives – which is better for the health of the company.
If your workplace doesn’t already engage its employees in volunteering, then consider attending the May 8 workshop “Building a Better Biz Thru Employee Engagement,” a free interactive workshop designed for businesses interested in learning from local leaders how to successfully engage employees through your philanthropy plan.
The workshop, offered by Austin Gives, will include an overview of the advantages of employee engagement in philanthropy by Beth Krueger of the United Way For Greater Austin; a panel discussion led by Ed Kargbo, president of Yellow Cab/Hail A Cab Austin; and will feature a few local, expert panelists. In addition, the workshop will wrap up with smaller table discussions to dive deeper into the topic of employee engagement and how it can contribute to the success of your business.
