Rachel Hutchisson, Blackbaud

“This idea of ‘voice and choice’ is, ask me what I think and then listen to what I have to say and then give me a choice as to how I can participate. Don’t forget that I’m an individual…That’s a really big trend.”

Do you volunteer at a nonprofit, or donate to one? Does your employer even know what causes align with you?  More and more employers are realizing that it’s important to offer ways their employees can give back. Listen to Rachel Hutchisson of Blackbaud describe how to create “an ecosystem of social good” for employees tailored to your team, in this enlightening interview with Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson.

You’ll hear:

  • How to give your teams “voice and choice” to engage them.
  • What to measure and how to show impact.
  • The causes employees are focused on, according to their data.
  • How to incentivize employees to tell you about their causes.
  • Career tips and more!

Note: This interview was recorded on location in a cavernous room, so the sound will be lower quality than our usual standards.
