’Tis the season of giving back, and companies often choose this time of year to align themselves with a cause. Why? Because doing good feels good, and happy employees create a healthy company. At Activate Staffing, we do various things throughout the year to not only show our support for some valued organizations and charities, but also as an opportunity to do something together as a team.
Above is a picture of Activate Staffing Regional Director Gina Wolf and COO Jodi Ayers at a CPCU I-Day in Phoenix. We regularly participate in industry events, including charity golf tournaments and other philanthropic endeavors relating to the insurance industry. For us, this is a natural fit since we are the leader in insurance staffing, and we also want to give back.
Not sure where to start? Follow these easy steps to finding a philanthropy for your company:
- Ask and You Shall Receive: Try asking stakeholders and team members how they’d like to give back or get involved. When employers give staff members the opportunity to give back, everyone feels a sense of gratitude for the opportunity.
- Align Your Values with a Cause: Clarify your company values, so you can identify an organization that closely aligns with your mission.
- Search Based on Criteria: Once you have established the criteria, such as size of organization, age of the charity and whether it’s local vs. national, you can try searching GuideStar.org to view charities based on your preferences.
