Two years ago, as part of the #12DaysofHCM, we talked about ways to make giving a year-round activity. This year, with the rise of the remote workforce top of mind, we wanted to focus on ways you can ensure giving and volunteering remains a companywide tradition so it’s always the season of giving.
One way to involve all employees in your charity work is to offer opportunities for virtual employees to volunteer alongside in-office teams, such as through concurrent national weeks of service.
There is no shortage of people in need of your support, and many nonprofit organizations have a nationwide or international presence, with regional offices and affiliated branches. When you’re coordinating a widescale campaign, be sure to include volunteer events at locations outside of your headquarters, where large numbers of your remote employees can easily attend.
Another way to give everyone the chance to give is to make charitable work part of your all-team meetings. Schedule specific time on the agenda for a joint community service project—consider even inviting your customers to participate, as we do at our annual Connections conference. It’s a great way to make a difference for others, while offering your employees the chance to connect with one another on a new level.
Giving has been a cornerstone of Ultimate Software’s “People First” culture from day one. In the spirit of giving, particularly during this holiday season, we’re thrilled to offer our brand-new solution, UltiPro® Giving, free to all Ultimate customers!
Modeled after our own in-house giving platform, UltiPro Giving enables organizations to seamlessly host charitable campaigns in support of nonprofits and causes they’re passionate about. Employees can choose how much they want to donate, and the funds are automatically deducted from their paychecks. Giving has never been easier.
However you choose to give, remember that no act is too small. Everyone has the chance to make a big difference. One act of kindness can change someone’s life forever.
