Helping You Measure and Scale Impact

Social Responsibility Strategy and Benchmarking

Increase engagement in your giving programs and deliver more meaningful impact in the community.

Social Responsibility Strategy and Benchmarking - Measure and Scale Impact


Employee engagement is a critical component of any organization. 70% of employees say it is imperative or very important to work for an employer where mission and value align, and employees most committed to their organizations put in 57% more effort on the job—and are 87% less likely to resign—than employees who consider themselves disengaged. When employees are invested in their work and share a company’s core values, they contribute positively to a company’s CSR initiatives and bottom line. So, understanding how your company’s giving, employee engagement, and social responsibility (CSR) goals compare to industry standards, your peers, and your own internal expectations is an important part of growing and running a successful program that produces meaningful impact in the community and around the world.


Set Realistic, Meaningful Goals

In addition to measuring your progress and impact, benchmarking can help your team identify if its goals and targets are realistic and how to better communicate about how your results translate into meaningful impact.

Identify Opportunities and Competitive Advantages

In addition to understanding if your program performance is meeting your own goals, benchmarking can help your team glean insights on how your program stacks up again your competitors and industry standards, as well as identify best practices or opportunities you can apply to scale your impact and engagement further.

Increase Employee Engagement

According to a Project ROI study, a well-designed corporate social responsibility program can increase employee engagement by up to 7.5%, increase employee productivity by 13%, reduce employee turnover by 50%, and increase revenue by as much as 20%.
