Research shows that 70% of all U.S. employees would be more loyal to a company that helps them contribute to social and environmental issues. Plus, our proprietary research shows that 85% of consumers prefer to give to local charities, making a difference right where they live and work.
Maximize your employee’s potential by maximizing the impact they can have on their communities; it worked for Elkay Manufacturing.
Elkay Manufacturing has nearly doubled their workplace giving campaign since 2014, raising over $107,000 in 2017—a nearly 25% increase from their 2016 campaign. The secret? Providing ways for their employees to support the causes important to them. Community Health Charities provided Elkay manufacturing with charities relevant to the causes employees cared about both locally to company headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, and nationally. The company matched pledges, making it easier for employees to have a large impact—and 49.4% of employees did.
“The ease and efficiency allows employees to support charities important to them from East to West coast,” said Elkay’s Linda Carlisle of Corporate Communications. “Instead of writing hundreds of checks, we write one check annually and Community Health Charities disperses it.”
To create a personalized campaign like Elkay Manufacturing did, utilize the Community Health Charities’ survey (this is a sample; we’ll customize one for you) to find the issues important to your employees. Then, work with a Community Health Charities representative to create a custom cause for your organization.
