5 Employee Engagement Tips from PricewaterhouseCoopers
In addition to the Make [It] Count program, PwC encourages staff members throughout the organization to volunteer their time (and/or money) in their communities. In the summer, PwC employees participate in nearly 400 projects. The corporate responsibility team has found that young staff members prefer to give their time, while older staff members tend to prefer to donate financially, so the team tries to facilitate that divide with a number of options for both groups. They recently gave $50 Donors Choose gift cards to each employee, which allowed them to donate to a cause of their choosing. Forty-six percent of employees used their cards, the highest rate of corporate reimbursement Donors Choose has seen. Additionally, the staff ended up spending over $10,000 of their own money on individual giving through the portal.
