So, how do you effectively engage employees? Join us to learn about how two Midwest-based companies are approaching employee engagement through employee giving, volunteerism, and other efforts, both locally and across the footprints of their respective companies.

2017 MIDWEST CORPORATE GIVING WEBINAR SERIES
Regional Associations from four Midwest states have collaborated to present a series of six webinars designed for companies with a corporate foundation, advised fund at a community foundation, or a giving program. This series specifically targets business professionals who want to think smarter and perform better when it comes to combining their corporate mission with philanthropic action.
Corporate philanthropy is an essential business function that helps support communities where companies are based, foster employee engagement, and generate business value. Individuals want to work for companies that support their communities, and consumers want to purchase goods from companies that are doing good in the world. The Midwest Corporate Giving webinar series offers data supporting the need for corporate philanthropy and development strategies to help giving programs succeed.
