Empowering Global Employee Volunteers (Successfully)

Global programs are one the main challenges for multinational companies and our team progressively works with clients to make it a reality.  CECP recently released their Giving in Numbers: 2012 Edition and provided interesting insights where international volunteerism stands.

According to the report, 47% of companies have at least one formal international volunteer program and listed the three most successful international employee volunteer programs:

  1. Company-Wide Day of Service
  2. Employee-Volunteer Awards
  3. Paid-Release Time

We were fortunate to work with Liberty Mutual this year to launch their global two-day “Serve with Liberty” campaign to celebrate their 100th anniversary that turned out quite successful. Company-wide days, weeks, and months of service are definitely trending among our clients and other global leaders. They serve a great purpose in engaging employees in corporate culture, team-building with colleagues and giving back to their local communities.

There’s nothing better to see the impact in action, below is a video of Liberty Syndicates staff participating in the two days of service.
