Bangalore Round Table: Designing an Effective Employee Volunteering Program
A recent study by Gallup discovered that companies with an engaged workforce outperform their peers by a margin as high as 147%.
This strong correlation between employee engagement and productivity is driving many companies to actively seek out ways to engage their employees.
We are witnessing a rise in interest in employee volunteering programs by corporations across the world. However, many companies in India still don’t have volunteering as a part of their company policy yet. They are struggling to come up with a plan to incorporate volunteering in the overall organisation structure.
This is where Goodera steps in. We help design volunteering policy for companies and our technology platform helps in the end-to-end management of volunteering programs for companies.
An eminent circle of business leaders came together in Bangalore on 16th July, 2018 for a Round Table organised by Goodera. During the course of the event, the speakers brought to light the many advantages of a robust Employee Volunteering Program in any organisation.
They also pointed out that an Employee Volunteering Program is much more than just a day of volunteering each month for employees. It is about creating a meaningful impact that volunteers can see and understand.
This is why Goodera shares extensive data encapsulating both impact and employee perception after completion of the event.
Archana Dhakappa, CSR Lead and Corporate Communications, HGS, delivered an interesting presentation about how HGS designed their Employee Volunteering Program with Goodera. She was joined on stage by Anthony Joseph, Executive Vice President, Global Human Resources, HGS.
We at Goodera played an integral role in the creation of this Employee Volunteering Program by providing both technical and logistical support.
HGS’s volunteering program has been a grand success with more than 95% of the employees involved in the program reporting a positive experience.
