Are you ready to take your employee engagement program to the next level?
Companies have been embracing corporate social responsibility for over a decade, yet employee engagement continues to be a major challenge for small businesses and global companies alike.
Employee engagement in corporate space is evolving and while group volunteering and company-wide donations are an essential part of a strong engagement program, many businesses are discovering that adding a skill based strategy can create a deeper and more purposeful level of engagement.
Employees are seeking meaning and purpose in their work and life and maintaining their identity by selecting jobs and careers that provide personal fulfillment. As an employer you have the opportunity to stand out in a competitive market, by utilizing SkillsLink to create significant community impact and giving your employees enriching corporate culture and a strong sense of purpose.
