Easy-to-use software platform makes participation simple, fun and meaningful for the 77% of today’s workers who say company-sponsored volunteer activities are essential . Submittable, the software company helping thousands of organizations worldwide launch, manage and measure social impact programs,enhanced its top-rated platform with a new corporate volunteering solution, making it easy, fun and meaningful for employees to participate in corporate social responsibility. While 90% of companies have a volunteer program in place, and 77% of workers cite these programs as essential to wellbeing, only 17% of employees participate, according to a report from Chief Executives for Corporate Purpose. Submittable addresses this challenge with a platform that makes it easy for employees to engage, and easy for companies to manage. “Employee volunteer programs only succeed through high participation; most fail not through lack of effort and desire, but because it’s difficult to wrangle competing priorities, opportunities and resources,” said Sam Caplan , VP of Social Impact at Submittable. “Technology can eliminate the barriers to make the volunteering process simple, so companies can dramatically scale engagement and reap the benefits in improved morale, retention, recruiting and brand loyalty.”
Submittable’s volunteer platform automates manual program administration and empowers employee participation through a clean, modern interface and powerful underlying tools. Employees or Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) can create their own opportunities and recruit others, while the easy sign-up, centralized information and streamlined processes drive participation. Built-in reporting for both admins and employees makes it easy to see, understand and measure impact, further strengthening engagement. Through it all, the volunteering process is efficient, accessible, fair and inclusive, while remaining data driven and secure.
