We speak a lot at Social Good Connect about the meaningful benefits of employee volunteering for businesses, employees and their communities. In fact, we’re always shouting about how being more purposeful with your community impact as a business can help improve employee wellbeing, build a positive reputation, increase customer legacy and grow networks.
Today we want to share what it means to work with us to implement an employee volunteering programme vs doing it yourself. And, more importantly, we want to introduce you to a very special someone…
SAM is what we call our search and match volunteering platform. From a seedling of an idea in our first design workshops, to an awkward teenager during our accelerated platform launch, and now an ambitious young thing with big dreams, SAM has grown up a lot over the last few years!
SAM loves social impact, positivity and pizza, but his passion above all else is finding the perfect volunteering opportunities for employees to suit their skills, passions, and interests.
He was built to solve a problem for businesses who want to do good in the community and offer employee volunteering, but who don’t have a simple place to find these opportunities.He works hard to create positive impact for companies, communities and employee volunteers.
Nothing makes SAM happier than collecting information, stirring in his secret sauce, and generating that perfect volunteering match. He can save you and your team a huge amount of time and energy when it comes to employee volunteering.
If you’ve decided that creating community impact and supporting your team’s wellbeing with Social Good Connect is the solution for you (or if you’ve not quite decided yet), why not give our Business Engagement Manager, Sarah, a call to find out how to get started?
