INCREASE EMPLOYEE RETENTION BY PRIORITIZING CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

It’s no longer enough for organizations to exist and create a profit—employees are expecting organizations to make a positive impact.

75% of US workers expect their employer to support groups and individuals and need in their respective communities, either through donations and/or volunteer efforts, reported a Glassdoor Study.

Whether it’s your first time running a workplace giving campaign or you’re looking to increase participation, Community Health Charities has the resources to help you meet your goals and increase employee engagement.

CHALLENGES ON THE HORIZON FOR NONPROFITS AND HOW YOU CAN HELP

Charitable giving is thriving at first glance—charities raised $410 billion in 2017. However, Chronicle’s reporting indicates that this may be philanthropy’s peak due to limiting trends:

  1. The share of Americans who give to charity is declining.
  2. Giving has declined in all age groups—not only millennials.
  3. Nonprofits are increasingly relying on the wealthy.

Community Health Charities is working hard to support our nonprofit partners and make it easy for companies and their employees to build stronger, healthier communities. Check out our resources: workplace giving campaigns, on-site volunteering events, and engagement activities.
