Corporate Grantmakers Community Webinar: Investing in Communities, Connecting to Strategy

Join our community of corporate grantmakers for an interactive webinar on community involvement and employee engagement. 

The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship‘s Community (BCCCC) Involvement Study 2019 explores how companies are investing in communities and how these efforts connect to their business strategies. In the 12 years that the Center has conducted this survey, they gained deeper insight into how the role of community involvement has become an incredibly important strategic component of business, particularly as it relates to engaging employees.  

Join Colleen Olphert, BCCCC Director, Membership Services, for a discussion on the data and highlights from the report including cool stats like: In this year’s report, BCCCC found that 95% of companies measuring the relationship between participation in employee volunteer programs and employee engagement scores have found a positive correlation. 

Following Colleen’s presentation, Melissa Sines will host a facilitated discussion for corporate grantmakers to share their stories, challenges, lessons learned, and success with community involvement and employee engagementPEAK Grantmaking’s Corporate Advisory Council members will also share plans and invite feedback for opportunities in 2020 to strengthen the network of corporate foundation members at PEAK
