Are you struggling to increase employee volunteerism and sustain or heighten their level of commitment? Are you looking to develop employee giving and volunteering experiences that are both meaningful to employees and contribute to a more inclusive society?

Join us for a thought-provoking session to rethink the way you approach employee volunteerism. During this session, you will hear about groundbreaking research, inspiring stories, and real-life examples that you can integrate into your corporate citizenship program to empower employees to challenge their assumptions, become alert to new ideas, and take action toward a company-wide social movement.

After this session, you will understand the difference between transactional and transformative volunteering and gain practical insights for working with nonprofits and key partners, including how to plan transformative experiences that engage employees at their highest level of contribution.
