With growing dialogue around purpose in the workplace and the increasing number of community-minded brands in the market, consumer and employee engagement trends in the United States are fueling the rise of corporate citizenship. Similar trends are also emerging in Asia. In fact, across Asia, the public increasingly believes that doing good should be part of a brand’s DNA. Regional leaders are also aware that employees are more motivated to perform when they see their company engaged in societal issues, according to Edelman’s 2016 Trust Barometer.

To address these trends, Points of Light has published a new report featuring a framework that corporate volunteer leaders can use to build effective employee volunteer programs in Asia, highlighting examples of what’s working for more than 25 global and regional brands. Unique in the market, this report harnesses the insights of our corporate partners and global network of innovative volunteer organizations across nine countries, and showcases a wealth of practitioner insights on critical elements needed to start and scale employee volunteering in Asia. These elements include getting employees in local offices excited about service, celebrating success, equipping and empowering volunteer leaders, and more.
