Workplace Giving: A Holistic Approach, Not a Piecemeal

Workplace Giving: A holistic approach; not a piecemeal New US research reveals a workplace giving culture transformed by technology, branding and the arrival of millennials in the workforce. Margaret Smith from the Australian Charities Fund helps assess the value in embracing these new trends.

A recent study in the US by America’s Charities considered close to 100 private sector employers, covering giving programs worth $230 million in over 20 industries and 2 million employees. It included some of the US’s most high-profile companies, including Wal-Mart Stores Inc, The Walt Disney Company, Thomson Reuters Corporation, JPMorgan Chase & Co and American Airlines.

Steve Delfin, President and CEO of America’s Charities, hailed the research as demonstrative of a paradigm shift and said there was a new workplace giving model emerging empowering employees to participate in the giving experience inside and outside the walls of the workplace.

Margaret Smith from the Australian Charities Fund provides Australian context for these emerging trends and assess the value to Australian companies in embracing them.
