AngelPoints White Paper: Higher Employee Engagement Brings Greater Value to Your Business

Using a Rewards Program to Recognize and Motivate Your Employee Volunteers
May 4, 2010 7:00 AM ET

(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) May 4, 2010 - Corporations have long since recognized the value of including Employee Volunteer Programs (EVPs) as part of their larger corporate social responsibility efforts. Such programs are highly cost-effective ways of giving back to the community. They:

• Help to strengthen your brand reputation and increase loyalty among your customers and your workplace

• Improve morale and provide meaningful and fun ways for your employees to get involved

• Provide opportunities for skills-based learning and development without the overhead of more traditional training 

It is also essential to note that your employees who are actively engaged “in the field” are tremendous brand ambassadors for your corporation. These people became the face of your company in your community, participating in the types of volunteer activities that espouse your company’s values. For example, a company in the Food and Beverage industry may support organizations and activities whose goal it is to reduce hunger. The company’s employee volunteers who donate their time in food banks and soup kitchens, educate children about nutrition, or who participate in fund- and awareness-raising walks against hunger are highly visible representatives of the company, actively demonstrating the company’s commitment to ameliorating hunger. Therefore, when people think of this company, they not only think of its products, they also have a positive impression of the company for its good works.
