For most companies, 2020 highlighted the interconnectedness, resilience, and vulnerabilities of their workforce worldwide. Grappling with financial uncertainty and employees in crisis, responsible companies turned to relief programs as a means of supporting employees and engaging in innovative giving strategies.

Recent E4E Relief research confirms that employee relief programs directly contribute to employee well-being in times of crisis. Key data shows that relief programs allow companies to generate goodwill and employee engagement, while mitigating crisis and volatility in their workforce. In a year that tested the limits of business continuity strategies, employee relief remains a practical, proactive strategy to improve employee financial and emotional well-being.

The central question behind the S in ESG (environmental social governance) is

The session will include data-driven insights from research conducted in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, a time when 28% of employees surveyed had less than a week’s savings.
