I love seeing companies get creative with giving back. As a matter of fact, I make it a point to talk to as many CSR leaders as I can to learn how they’re embracing the full potential of their employees to create profound impact in their communities. The stories are always so inspiring, and I usually discover new ways that businesses are prioritizing employee volunteer and giving programs.
Here are a few of my favorites:
