Engaging Your Employees

Engaging Your Employees

Posted

Corporations can support CARE’s work and create a better work environment by encouraging employees to contribute their time, money, and expertise to support the fight against global poverty. Employee engagement helps enrich employee’s experience as demonstrated by increased morale, productivity, retention and enhanced workplace skills.

CARE will work with your company to identify unique opportunities for employees to connect to CARE’s mission while supporting your social responsibility strategy.

Opportunities may include on-site events such as lunch and learn programs, webinars or film screenings. Off-site opportunities include participation in CARE’s signature events such as the CARE National Conference & International Women’s Day Celebration or programs which leverage employee skills.

For example, CARE is a proud partner of Intel Education Service Corps (IESC) which sends Intel employees to developing countries to deploy Intel computers and train teachers and students to effectively use technology. 

 

Workplace Giving

Give your employees the opportunity to give back in a way that can most benefit the cause of their choice, as well as your corporate culture. A workplace giving campaign with CARE can allow you to meet your corporate social responsibility and philanthropy goals while providing a meaningful opportunity for employee engagement.

Your generous support will help CARE improve basic education, prevent the spread of disease, increase access to clean water and sanitation, expand economic opportunity and deliver emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters.

 

Corporate Matching

Multiply the impact of your gift! Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of CARE’s corporate partners, many employees have the option of doubling or even tripling their donation to CARE through corporate matching gift programs. See if your company matches charitable donations!

 

Expertise Sharing

The expertise of a corporate partner can be leveraged to help CARE overcome the challenges of working in remote areas of developing countries such as supply chain, transportation and communications. This invaluable support helps increase the efficacy and sustainability of CARE's programs. We are grateful to UPS (supply chain and logistics) and Cisco (connectivity) for their long-standing support to CARE.

 

Bring "Girl Rising" to Your Workplace

Over the past two years, CARE has developed a close partnership with 10x10, a global action campaign to educate and empower girls. At the center of the campaign is a feature film, "Girl Rising," which highlights the types of challenges girls in CARE’s educational programs face.

CARE will work with you to create an employee engagement campaign or activity which uses the film to educate and inspire your employees.

For each action taken on Join My Village, users unlock funds from General Mills and Merck to support CARE programs in India and Malawi. Check out this interactive online community of videos, blogs and fun activities and help empower women and girls!
