What Employees Think about Workplace Giving, Volunteering, and CSR

Snapshot 2017: What US Employees Think about Workplace Giving, Volunteering, and CSR

American employees are changing — and so are their attitudes about workplace giving and volunteering.

“It’s clear from Snapshot 2017 that employees demand choice and CSR professionals must move to more employee centric forms of engagement to drive social and business value. CSR and nonprofit professionals alike will benefit from Snapshot 2017’s actionable insights.” -- Gary R. Levante, Asst. Vice President, Community Engagement, Berkshire Bank 

Today’s workers are more transient, diverse, and tech savvy than their predecessors. They are also working in an era of greater uncertainty, as entire industries are being transformed by technology and globalization. Against this backdrop, America’s Charities has conducted a new survey of U.S. workers that gauges attitudes toward giving and volunteering in the workplace. 

Snapshot 2017 Will Help You Understand:

  • What types of giving methods and opportunities employees are interested in
  • What inspires employees to actually participate and give
  • How workplace giving and volunteer programs can help your company attract and retain talent, build a strong culture, and achieve greater social impact
  • How your company can structure more successful employee giving and volunteering programs
  • How your nonprofit organization can cultivate better relationships with workplace donors
