How will your company benefit from our Employee Volunteering Program?

Your challenges:

  • red x It takes you at least 20-30 hours to plan a single event, with endless back-and-forth between external partners and internal stakeholders.
  • red x You struggle to make volunteering impactful and sustainable versus ad-hoc and transactional.
  • red x You have no system or process to track and report employee volunteer sign-ups, hours served, employee satisfaction, and impact.
  • red x Finding reliable partners, virtual volunteer events, or volunteer events for remote employees takes time and pulls you away from your other work.
  • red x Your employees aren’t utilizing the volunteer time off (VTO) hours and their potential impact is wasted.

Our full-service Employee Volunteering Program process

We provide white-glove support to customize in-person and virtual employee volunteering for your company.

01

Program design

We use our Employee Passion Assessment to design a Volunteer Program that allows your employees to support the causes they’re most passionate about.

02

Partner recruitment

Once we know where your employees are and what causes they care about most, we start looking for the right local charity partners for you.

03

Event selection

For each individual event, we present you with a list of several project options curated by your employees’ preferences and your company’s goals.

04

Employee volunteer recruitment

We provide you with ready-made volunteer recruitment materials (e.g. email, Slack, etc.) to educate employees about the curated volunteer events and help them sign up on our platform.

05

Event facilitation

We manage pre-event planning and logistical details so your employees can focus solely on volunteering.

06

Employee volunteer feedback

Post-event, we share pulse surveys to gather feedback and authentic employee volunteer stories.

07

Event impact report

We deliver personalized impact reports after each volunteer event. These branded reports (also accessible in your dashboard) include stats, testimonials, and visual assets.

What our customers say

Quotation mark

Betterment completed our first-ever Volunteer Week with Percent Pledge - employees had several opportunities to volunteer their time, knowledge, skills, and expertise to support Tech Education, Financial Literacy, and Climate Change.

Organizing volunteer events was a pain point because we have a small DEI team, and evaluating nonprofits is very time-consuming. We turned to Percent Pledge because we trusted the burden would be taken off our internal team.

Percent Pledge presented me with 3 project options thoughtfully curated based on our Passion Report. I knew we were having a conversation about Feedonomics, not just another client, and we chose the virtual Map-a-Thon!
