3 Reasons to Internationalize your program
It supports diversity
One of the best ways to increase employee engagement is by supporting — and celebrating — diversity and inclusion across your company, through a corporate responsibility and employee benefits program that is consistent across locations. By giving all of your people a single experience, you can help them build closer relationships with each other and create a prosocial culture that shows you’re “walking the talk.” To do that, you need a trusted, convenient and tech-enabled way for employees to support the causes of their choice.
More of your people expect global opportunities to do Good
Companies expect international giving rates to increase by 25 percent over the next two years, according to a recent study from the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship. When you consider that 82% of Millennials look at a company’s CSR efforts before deciding where to work, that increase just makes sense. And it’s not just Millennials. Everyone, from Boomers to the Gen Z cohort who just entered the workforce, wants a job that gives them a chance to help people. You can bet they’ll be attracted to employers who value philanthropy regardless of borders.
It solidifies your
An international Goodness program not only helps unify your employees across offices, it can also help you achieve smoother operations in global markets, bolster community relationships internationally and improve your reputation with both employees and customers outside of your corporate headquarter country. Until recently, it was difficult to provide a truly international workplace giving program. Doing it right requires accounting for nuances like language, currency, locally relevant charity validation, global payment disbursement to charities and more.
