107: National Philanthropy Day: How a Culture of Giving Impacts Your Business by unsuitable published on 2017-11-13T11:06:28Z Every year, on National Philanthropy Day -- November 15 – people, organizations, and businesses come together to reflect on the great contributions being done to improve our communities. On this episode of unsuitable, we will lend our voices to the chorus. Not only that, but we will be talking to Maribeth Wright, a principal on Rea’s not-for-profit team, about what happens when giving back becomes a focal point of a company’s culture. Employees want to work for businesses that give back! 74 percent of employees consider their jobs to be more fulfilling when they can impact social and environmental issues while at work, and 70 percent of employees say they are more likely to be loyal to an employer that helps them give back and get involved – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you want to create a positive impact and strengthen your business, you will be interested in these other topics discussed in this episode: Supporting local nonprofits (either financially or by encouraging employees to volunteer time) is a great reflection of a company’s brand. How you can encourage giving and make a positive impact on your community, without writing a check. How encouraging employees to get out there and volunteer can result in free marketing and positive public relations.
