Successful employee engagement programs are essential to building workplace culture. The 2022 Gallup State of Global Workforce report shows a disengaged global workforce causes a $7.8 trillion loss in productivity per year. A company's corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives actively contribute to employee belonging by deploying giving, volunteering and grantmaking tactics that can support the nonprofit community near and far, as well as their own employees through specialized relief programs.

Blackbaud's YourCause portfolio helps companies engage and retain employees, build a strong workplace culture and deliver on their socially responsible missions while connecting them to the largest global charity database of vetted nonprofits. The employee engagement solution provides features for giving, volunteering, virtual employee resource groups and peer-to-peer fundraising, while the corporate grant platform helps companies streamline programs for community investment, scholarships or employee assistance funds. While EVERFI® from Blackbaud® helps companies deliver social impact through digital education that drives measurable change on societal issues in their communities.

Together YourCause and EVERFI offer the market's most comprehensive and scaled portfolio for corporate impact driven by two essential levers: engagement and education, What makes it so powerful is that we connect companies to the market's most robust network of causes and schools, equip them with proven expertise, and help them grow their impact through rich data and reporting, said Tom Davidson, Founder and CEO of EVERFI from Blackbaud.
