VolunteerMatch is a national nonprofit dedicated to strengthening communities by helping good people and good causes to connect. The organization is known as the leader in volunteer engagement and resources. Vicky Hush will share the findings of VolunteerMatch's industry research on effective employee volunteer programs (EVP). In the fall of 2012, VolunteerMatch set out to determine the inputs that make a successful EVP by surveying their corporate partners. The results of the Client Insights Survey provide a first-ever look at what strong programs look like, and offers best practices for companies. This is a rare opportunity to hear analysis and interpretation of what this information means and how companies can use it. 12:00 pm ET, Thursday, February 28, 2013
œThe Strategy for Good Summit is designed to inspire companies to get more strategically involved in their communities and to demonstrate the many options businesses can choose from to give back and make an impact. says Sue Hyatt, founder and CEO of CORE THOUGHT and the Strategy for Good Summit Host.
œThe good news is that we don't have to choose between civic engagement and sizable profits. Great companies aspire to create BOTH and, in the process, become market front-runners and create great places to work. We can build businesses that are good for ourselves, our employees, community partners, and the larger world, says Hyatt.
The summit is FREE to attend with a choice of listening to sessions live or later as recordings are available for the 30 live web sessions for 24 hours after each presentation. Registration includes a self-assessment tool for participants to use to evaluate their current community engagement practices. Registration can be found at www.strategyforgoodsummit.com/registration
