Each year, BlackRock’s CEO Larry Fink writes a letter to the CEOs of all the companies that his firm invests in. BlackRock, an American global investment management firm manages $6.3 trillion of assets – the largest amount worldwide. His 2019 Letter to CEOs urges CEOs to focus on creating long-term, sustainable growth which BlackRock clients can rely upon when investing. How does he suggest doing this? CEOs must lead with purpose.
Employees increasingly expect their company to support them in giving back to the causes they care about. So, how do companies design an employee giving program that meets strategic business goals and ensures employees are engaged? One strategy that we love is to design an Individual Employee Volunteer Program.
This week’s Non-Profit Highlight celebrates the 100th anniversary of Junior Achievement BC (JABC)!
We spoke with the Director of Community Engagement of JABC, Cheryl Borgmann, about how they work to ensure that the natural world will continue to be preserved for its own intrinsic value and for the benefit of all.
Employees no longer see workplace volunteering as desirable, but as an expectation. The scope of causes employees support and the ways they want to give back are widening, from speaking out on Social Media to volunteering time on the weekend, to offering a pro-bono service to organizing team fundraising events. So too, must your business create an employee volunteer program to meet the changing needs of today’s modern workforce.
