A campaign that addresses the needs and interests of all employees can help engage everyone, meet corporate social responsibility goals and battle the ‘great resignation’ of 2021.
Connect your diversity, equity and inclusion principles with your workplace giving campaign this year. It's a great way to increase participation in the campaign while building a more inclusive space for colleagues.
Regardless of where you find yourself in this process, we have resources to help – check out our suggestions below and access everything in the Employee Giving Hub. It’s free and always available to support your employee engagement strategies!
For the busy professional: A summary
Under “Employee Engagement Tools,” our hub offers a “Creating a Diverse and Inclusive Workplace Giving Campaign” handout that covers the basics so you can hit the ground running. Recruitment, training, outreach and charity representation are all highlighted along with follow up resources for you to explore. This is the place to start if you haven’t spent much time thinking about how to diversify your campaign or are mid-campaign and want to get a quick snapshot of changes you can make.
Tip: As part of your campaign planning, assess your workplace giving committees and leadership to make sure they best represent your workforce. Create a matrix of the priority skills, location and department representation to inform your targeted recruitment plan.
