Labor Day, celebrated on the first Monday of September, marks the achievements and importance of American workers. It’s a time for employees to enjoy well-deserved time off, but it’s also an opportunity to think about how to make your company a better place to work.
Workplace Generosity is not only good for communities; it helps build company culture and connection. Here are four ways to awaken generosity in your workplace:
- Plan a company community service day. Whether you’re participating in a citywide cleanup or delivering meals, a service project will bond your team while you benefit your community.
- Encourage volunteerism. Give employees paid time off to volunteer with the organizations of their choice.
- Help others succeed. Many people in our communities need help entering or reentering the workforce. Volunteer to help write resumes or teach interview skills. Offer shadow days at your workplace. Hold a clothing drive for professional outfits. There are so many things you can do!
- Implement a workplace giving program. Uncommon Giving’s Workplace Generosity solution makes it easy to awaken generosity and encourage giving of time, talent or financial resources in companies of all sizes. Learn more here.
