increase employee wellness
There are several ways for organizations to express their commitment to social impact. Apart from sponsorship activities, an organization can also build an employee giving program that benefits not only the society but also boost employee wellness.
automatic payroll deductions
This convenient perk withdraws a set amount from enrolled employees paychecks automatically. Consider allowing staff members to choose where their contributions go. Over the last 3 years, employee giving through payroll deduction has decreased by almost 3%. This may be in part due to the fact that employees are more likely to donate when they have an opportunity to choose the cause.
employee matching gift programs
Just like 65% of the fortune 500 companies, many employers will match donations made by their employees to support an organization of the employees choice. The types of the match are 1:1, 0.5:1 or 4:1. 2 out of 3 organization offer to donate to the organization of their employees choosing, and others offer to donate to specific nonprofits.
Allow employees to raise money on behalf of an organization, personalize their connections to a cause, and share their stories with friends and family online. Almost 24% of all giving online is done through Peer-To-Peer fundraising, where more than 50% of American employers intend to use social media tools to help their employees connect with their peers and nonprofits. Peer-to-Peer challenges can strengthen teams as they foster a healthy sense of competition and camaraderie.
