COORDINATE COMMUNITY OUTREACH & VOLUNTEER EFFORTSURE SURVEYS
Organizations benefit from performing charitable work, which can serve as team building exercises and improve the employer brand. Corporate social responsibility is an increasingly important metric evaluated by both employees and customers. In organizing community outreach, HR pros must manage numerous moving tasks including:
Solicit and tally feedback from employees regarding charity selection
Inform employees of options for volunteer hours
Enable employees to sign-up easily
Coordinate events with charitable organizations
Record hours contributed by employees
Communicate with the public about charitable activities
GATHER INPUT AND ENCOURAGE PARTICIPATION
Many organizations seek feedback from employees regarding which charities to support. You may want to select a few charities for your organization to support by conducting a formal survey of your workforce.
Most employees are eager to give back to the local community, and simply need to know what steps to take in order to participate. HR managers must ensure employees are aware of their options and know what steps to take to sign-up.

TRACK AND COMMUNICATE CHARITABLE ACTIVITIES
The ability to dedicate working hours to volunteering is an attractive benefit for many employees. Some employers allow teams to take time out of the office to volunteer together, enabling their efforts to also serve as a team building exercise. Finally, charitable donations are also tax-deductible. HR professionals must ensure all these data points are tracked and reported.
