How will it help my business?
Participating in philanthropic events as a group makes people feel more involved and connected. This will result in workplace friendships and relationships becoming stronger. Additionally, social events allow employees to unwind and relieve stress. By organising a social gathering, you demonstrate your appreciation for your employees as well as your concern for their health and well-being.
Charitable events not only help you establish a company culture, but they also promote the charity itself in order to raise as much money as possible!
A company that prioritises employee wellness in its operations will see increased productivity, output, and employee loyalty. According to a new whitepaper titled 'Maximising Your Return on Engagement,' a sense of well-being produces 31% higher productivity and 59% better loyalty in employees.
As a result, providing opportunities for employees to improve their health and well-being should be at the top of a company's priority list.
