The Future of Employee Engagement and Social Good in Companies

We all know that empowering employees to create social impact–whether it be through volunteering, giving, or general acts of kindness-is good for business. So good, in fact, that a global survey conducted by Nielsen found that 66% of respondents were willing to pay more for products and services from companies committed to positive social and environmental impacts; a Harvard Business Review study found that companies with strong CSR programs experienced up to 50% lower employee-turnover rates compared to companies that did not prioritize CSR. As good as the benefits are, executing a successful social-impact program is becoming increasingly challenging because of rapid changes in the tools available, employee expectations, and restrictions on time.
