Best Practices in Corporate Engagement from VolunteerMatch Solutions: Introduction to Measurement and Evaluation - Creating a Roadmap for Measuring Your Multiple Programs, with Tom Knowlton and Chantell Johnson, TCC Group

A company’s portfolio of programs spans a number of issues, reaches a variety of stakeholders, and gets implemented in many locations. How can a Corporate Community Involvement (CCI) professional collect the appropriate level of data that will help guide development? Which programs need to be evaluated? What do your internal and external stakeholders need?

Join Thomas Knowlton and Chantell Johnson from consulting firm TCC Group for this Webinar. They will provide an overview of the different tools and processes available, as well as a framework for mapping out your various program measurement needs.
