Increasing Employee Engagement Inside and Outside the Workplace

With Helping Hands
Many businesses have begun to realize they have the ability to transform the lives of billions by simply looking in their own back yard.
Employees who are given the opportunity to perform acts of service in their communities not only feel better about themselves, they develop closer relationships to each other and associate all those good feelings with the place they work, so increased feeling of morale, loyalty and ultimately engagement, not to mention the how they can positively impact their communities as well. Volunteerism is becoming the norm for companies and the core around which many employee engagement initiatives are being created.
With a new year approaching, this could be the perfect time to explore ways to introduce a volunteer program at your office. The link between employee volunteer programs and business performance have long been explored and research has confirmed that there are many benefits volunteer programs offer employees, their company and the community. There is scientific proof as shown in a 2010 study that employees who volunteer together are more likely to develop a stronger emotional attachment to their company, to each other, identify more strongly with corporate culture and values while enhancing awareness of business goals and strategies.
The Surprising Benefits of Volunteerism
Meanwhile a 2013 study found that employees who volunteer are more engaged with their work and feel more connected to their jobs. The study also showed that volunteering increased the level of meaning an individual assigned to their work resulting in increased overall job performance at work. The 2014 State of Corporate Citizenship study found that employee volunteering hovers around 30% for companies which leaves much room for growth and more initiatives. A largely unknown result of this survey revealed that while employees do desire to do well in their community, that is actually not what drives them to participate.
