The partnership enables Reward Gateway clients and their employees to donate easily to more than 4,000 vetted nonprofit projects and organizations around the world right from the Reward Gateway platform.
The announcement follows a recent study by the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship’s Community Involvement which found that companies are now committed to making their community involvement initiatives as strategic as they are impactful. For example, 2019 data reveals that:
The new charitable giving capability gives employees access to thousands of non-profits, special programs, and even disaster relief efforts, aggregated into a single view that can be sorted by name, industry or cause. Workers can select the amount they want to donate by using employee rewards or discount savings earned on the Reward Gateway platform. Because GlobalGiving is seamlessly integrated with the Reward Gateway platform, employees can donate peer or manager-awarded funds earned on the platform quickly and easily.
According to Rob Boland, Group Director of Product and Client Success at Reward Gateway:
“Low unemployment rates and the ongoing war for talent have created a new focus on the needs of the employee to bolster recruitment and retention efforts. At the same time, employees want more from their employer than a paycheck. They want a sense of pride and fulfillment from their work, a purpose and a company whose values match their own. Our partnership with Global Giving allows our clients to weave charitable giving into their overall employee engagement strategy, alongside recognition and reward, communications, feedback and more.”
Global Giving Executive Director, Rachel Smith, says:
“We are excited to partner with Reward Gateway on this initiative, offering an easy and trusted way for their clients and employees to donate to vetted nonprofit projects and organizations they care about. Technology provides a great opportunity to connect people in new ways and provide innovative solutions to connect companies with charitable causes. As the workforce changes, more employees are looking for a sense of social purpose through their work. Through our partnership with Reward Gateway, we’re hoping to help companies and employees accelerate community-led change and have a global impact."
