Why run a workplace campaign with United Way?
Studies show that employees who feel connected to their community are healthier, happier, and more productive. Employees who feel more engaged with their community help boost working relationships, job satisfaction, and the company's bottom line.
United Way research shows that people want to do more. They want to make a difference and be part of a larger effort to make thier community a better place. When this happens in the workplace - by donating, volunteering, or spreading the word - it adds value to the employee experience.
United Way offers many opportunities to engage your employees in a way that makes it possible to improve lives in OUR community. We have a great appreciation for your efforts and time contributed.
