International Giving and Volunteering

International giving and volunteering are on the rise, a phenomenon that translates to opportunities beyond simply making a charitable impact on a worldwide scale. Companies are expecting a significant increase in international giving over the next two fiscal years (rising by 25%), with the goal of engaging their employees, improving their operations in global markets, strengthening community ties internationally and building their reputation with employees and customers outside their headquarter countries. But the world of international giving is complex, with considerations including vetting, tax regulations, foreign currencies and more. Here's what you need to know before you dive deep into your strategy.

Serving up Goodness in the Workplace – The World’s Most Powerful (and Cost Effective) Employee Benefit
Many believe that the relentless pursuit to offer the next compelling employee benefit that will attract and retain the talent companies need is a “race to the bottom.” But there’s a gem sitting right in front of us that is shinier than any trendy perk. Hint: it’s not free yoga classes, the drink fridge or bring-your-dog-to-work Fridays. It’s the idea of delivering up Goodness as part of the employee experience, which is even more powerful in a global context, as businesses continue to be challenged to create a unified corporate culture that transcends borders and leverages diversity.
