Fortunately, we have the experience to guide you through this process and develop programs that will result in the highest levels of buy-in from your employees. Our proven employee engagement solutions have benefitted numerous organizations, and they can do the same for yours.

From there, we continue to take an active role in every aspect of your initiatives, providing problem-solving expertise as well as sound financial management to ensure no wasted resources.
We can boost your storytelling and make your employees front and center. This can be crucial to ensuring you increase employee engagement by creating good examples and encouraging coworkers to join in and contribute. At every step along the journey, we reassess how successful our efforts are with frequent employee surveys and other metrics. This means you will always be kept in the loop as to how strongly your employees are connecting with and buying into your charitable efforts.

To celebrate its 100th birthday in 2021, Lowe’s envisioned a large-scale initiative to invest in the communities it serves with the goal of completing 100 local impact projects. Although Lowe’s already had ongoing CSR initiatives and a vibrant culture of volunteering, the company quickly came to understand that such a massive effort in such a short time frame would require additional reinforcements. Before engaging Points of Light, Lowe’s didn’t have a partner that had both the experience in managing partnerships with local nonprofits as well as the resources to accomplish this endeavor.
When it comes to making a positive impact on your community, you need all the help you can get. As a company, you already have a large array of resources, the most important of which being your employees. Encouraging your team to become active participants in your charitable efforts is critical to maximizing the good you can do.
It’s not as simple, however, as putting out a call for engagement. There are numerous reasons why your employees may be reluctant to participate in your civic engagement initiatives, and you will need a concentrated effort to overcome them and get the highest number of people to pitch in and help. As an expert facilitator of community-support initiatives, Points of Light has the expertise needed for improving employee engagement.
