As shareholders, employees are also highly invested in their company’s support of critical issues. Employees want to get involved in their company’s cause-related efforts through: matching grants, dollars for doers, paid time off to volunteer etc.
Today’s socially conscious consumers and employees are truly “cause shareholders” because they have more than just a stake in a company’s responsibility efforts – they have a vested interest in the outcome. They invest in a company’s initiatives, either with their purchasing power or their livelihoods. Much like a traditional financial shareholder, they look to the company and its management to take both a short- and long-term view on how to achieve the greatest bang for their buck (in this case, social and environmental bang), but along the way, they still want to have a say. They hope to make a difference by lending their time, money and brainpower.
Just like consumers, employees want to feel vested in their employers’ programs and are willing to roll up their sleeves to have an impact. For companies, the investment is well worth it. Employees who are very involved in their company’s cause program are 28 percent more likely to be proud of their company’s values and 36 percent more likely to feel a strong sense of loyalty than those who are not involved.
