2. Highlight Areas of Impact

Gain insight through consolidated reporting on where and how your employees are utilizing your CSR program. You will be able to analyze at a high level how employee volunteerism, workplace giving, and grant programs impact specific cause areas. With this data, you can spotlight how your employees are enriching their communities.

 

3. Recognize Program Champions

Learn who is going above and beyond to grow your program and help their community – and give them some love! Whether they are leading the pack with giving, donating their time at local charities, or coordinating volunteer events, show these leaders that you recognize and appreciate their efforts.

 

4. Review Company Program

Use reporting to review your program engagement, make sure you are on track to reach your goals and make any possible modifications. We recommend setting aside time to sit down and review your program data. Reporting tools allow you to slice and dice to help you analyze areas of importance to your company.

 

5. Align Company Goals

In order for your CSR programs to be authentic, it’s important to align your company’s giving with your employees’ passions. Supporting the causes your employees are invested in will elevate their desire to participate.

 

6. Grow and Evolve Company Program

Once you review your workplace giving and volunteering data, you will have an understanding of what parts of your program are most engaging to your employees. Use these findings to modify your company CSR strategy.

 

7. Inspire Employees

Share successes, milestones, and goals with your company. Reports provide participation percentages, hours volunteered, and donations made. When employees see the collective impact they’ve made, they are inspired to keep making a difference – and raise the bar to do even more!

 

8. Create Targeted Messaging

Communication is a key part of developing and growing your CSR program. Let the reports help you shape your message and who receives it. Consolidated reporting allows you to identify employees who have already given or volunteered so that you can acknowledge their efforts. On the flip side, you will be able to identify populations or locations where you can ramp up program marketing.

 

9. Share Results with Senior Leadership

Impress your management team and stakeholders with real data that shows the impact of your CSR program. Analytics provide a clear picture of not only dollars raised and hours volunteered, but also how important social responsibility is to your workforce.
