An important—often underleveraged—employee motivation technique is involvement in social impact initiatives. A growing body of evidence illustrates the power of enabling employees (especially millennials) to give back to their community and support favorite causes at work.
According to the 2011 Deloitte Volunteer IMPACT Survey of employed adults ages 21 – 35, millennials who frequently participate in workplace volunteer activities are nearly twice as likely to be very satisfied with the progression of their career.
Employee engagement through cause is a vital means by which to strengthen employee relationships, enhance employee morale, and even build critical skill sets and expertise.
Plus, employees are hungry for ways to get involved in cause.
