Employee connection

Attract, engage and retain employees with a purpose-infused culture that empowers them to give back to causes they care about.

Engaged employees work harder

Employee engagement or connection describes the strength of the mental and emotional connection employees feel toward their workplace and colleagues. Several factors contribute to employee engagement, such as feeling supported by leadership, understanding one's role within the company, and feeling like one's work is meaningful.

When these factors are present, employees are more likely to be engaged in their work and help your company outperform your competition.

Engaged and connected employees are:
● more likely to go above and beyond
● more invested in their work, which can increase productivity
● likely to stay with your company longer, which reduces churn

If you're looking to get the most out of your employees, it's important to prioritize strong employee connection  💟  👍

83% of millennials say they would be more loyal to a company that helps them contribute to social issues.

Social impact deepens connections

How you contribute to society impacts your employees’ pride in their work and devotion to your company. Our suite of tools helps human resource executives, people operations managers, and department leaders cultivate passion and motivation in employees and implement team-building activities that boost productivity and profits.

Here are a few impact experiences that can make your employees feel more connected to each other and your company:

➊  Employee of the month
Show team members how much you appreciate them by recognizing job performance and work milestones in a meaningful way. Send your employee of the month a charitable gift card — they redeem the card by donating its value to the charity of their choice.

➋  Fundraising challenge
Let your employees fundraise for a cause with peer-to-peer campaigns they can customize in minutes. They can set a goal and share their page with friends and family to gain support from wider audiences. Reward the top fundraisers with a special lunch or extra day off. A friendly competition will create a buzz around the office and bring people together to make a difference in their community.

➌  Lunch & learn
Offer team members a chance to meet face-to-face and learn about a nonprofit cause together. Employees from every department can participate, creating stronger connections throughout the company. Invite a nonprofit representative to speak about the importance of their mission and how they create a positive impact. Your company can mobilize generosity by matching every contribution employees make to the cause.

➍  Holiday event
Unite your team and boost morale. Host a charitable event to raise money for a nonprofit cause that aligns with your employees' values. Give every team member who donates to the event a free ticket and drink voucher. Donate proceeds from beverage sales to the nonprofit organization that matters most to your team.
