Maximize shared value for the organization, employees, and the community through an employee-powered volunteer program.
A lack of leadership support, especially middle manager support, derails participation in an employee volunteer program.
Measuring the social impact of employee volunteer programs is difficult, as it is an abstract concept. As a result, organizations often avoid measuring impact altogether. This is a missed opportunity to demonstrate the value and many benefits of the program to fellow employees and senior leaders.
