Volunteers are the backbone of many charitable efforts and, when companies recognize and reward those efforts, employees become more engaged, productive and happier in the workplace.

With Spark, enable your people to give their time and talents to causes around the world that they’re passionate about, showcasing their skills and your brand in the community. Signing up and tracking time is simple, and you can offer rewards like Dollars for Doers and Charitable Gift Cards to motivate participation and impact. Create and feature Volunteer Opportunities and events supporting local and international charities, and promote them to your people based on their location, skills and interests.

You’ll also be able to measure and evaluate the success of your volunteer initiatives, using Spark’s robust reporting features.

 

 
“Of the 60% of companies that measure the connection between engagement in their employee volunteer program and employee engagement, 89% found a positive correlation.”
