Employee Volunteering Strengthens Communities, Boosts Morale
By Lauren Holloway, Public Relations/Media Coordinator at Operation Warm
Would making a difference in the general community help increase morale in your work community?
Our organization believes the gift of a brand new winter coat can help a child’s life by empowering them with greater self-confidence, while also fostering school attendance and outdoor play. Furthermore, we think employers and employees can be a vital part of the solution.
Operation Warm offers the opportunity for brands, organizations and institutions to achieve the goal of connecting every child in need in America with a brand new winter coat in various communities around the United States.
Many employers and employees see our programs as an investment in team-building and brand reputation. In fact, a recent study found 74% of employees say their job is more fulfilling when they are provided with opportunities to make a positive impact on social and environmental issues.
Operation Warm’s full service employee volunteer package provides employees an opportunity to have a meaningful impact in the life of a child and positively contribute to the local community. Our coat giving events are a joyful and memorable experience for every volunteer and child.
Lastly, we’ve seen our employee volunteer program help companies build trust with the public – consumers tend to trust brands and companies that give back. In fact, a recent study found 84% of its respondents believe brands have the power to make the world a better place.
