The race to secure and maintain high-quality talent is no easy feat for companies but critically important for successful businesses. Today, corporations must balance their reputation, brand, and values with a purposeful talent management strategy to remain competitive and appeal to current and potential employees. The talent crisis and the growing anxiety around talent mismatch continue to drive greater emphasis on how corporate social responsibility (CSR) influences the attraction and retention of employees. As a corporate giving leader, how can you leverage your work to support this effort?

Join us to examine how corporate social responsibility (CSR) aids talent management. This webinar will provide a synopsis of the latest trends and how to use the insights to make the case and drive conversation with colleagues. We will also explore CSR perspectives across different generations and how to view your company’s corporate giving strategy and opportunities for integration through a talent retention lens. 

This webinar is presented by Indiana Philanthropy Alliance, in association with Minnesota Council on FoundationsCouncil of Michigan Foundations, and Philanthropy Ohio.
