The Cost of Apathy

Why should company leaders care about this shift in employee recruitment and retention? It will cost the average department $15,000 to $20,000 to replace a single employee, according to Cone Communications research. This number may be even higher for specialized skill sets, so commonly required in today’s marketplace. Dailey reveals that 40 percent of your Millennial employees are probably looking for other jobs right now.

How a Nonprofit Organization Responds:

“Businesses want to do more than simply write a check; they want to bring more value to their employees and culture,” says Dick Sanford, the founder and CEO of the nonprofit, Operation Warm. Sanford says through conversations with corporate leaders, he learned that there was a critical need for a nonprofit partnership that provided not just a way to show corporate responsibility, but also offer a real hands-on volunteer opportunity for employees. He responded by forming the Operation Warm Employee Volunteer program, to give companies the opportunity to deliver brand new winter coats to children in need in their communities.
