When you picture an engineering firm, you might expect the workforce to be made up of the stereotypes: firm, no-nonsense, and above all efficient employees. However, it's possible to do your job well while also being fulfilled, engaged and passionate. We got to chat with a company who's been able to strike a perfect balance - employing a fun-loving and creative team while also excelling in the industry. We connected with Natashia Yezak, who has worked at Strategy Engineering for the past three and a half years, and she enlightened us on the various philanthropic initiatives put in motion by the company since its inception.
When it comes to philanthropy, there are many companies doing their part to give back to the community in their own way. What sets some apart from the crowd is how innovatively and enthusiastically they engage their employees and their clients in their CSR programs. This is why CPXi's philanthropic initiatives caught our attention.
Incorporating engagement strategies is a must when it comes to improving productivity and achieving goals, and some companies definitely know how to do this better than others. We recently connected with Entertainment Partners, an organization that provides multiple ways for its employees to get involved in giving back, to see how philanthropy contributes to an engaged culture.
In the business world, there's no question that employee engagement matters. Engaged employees are more productive, more willing to go above and beyond, and more dedicated long-term. Experts have found that successful companies generally have at least one thing in common: they truly care about inspiring their employees and paying attention to their needs.
Research has shown that the benefits of engaging employees are numerous. If you're looking for simple ways to make this happen at your company, research also shows that establishing a strong Corporate Social Responsibility program is extremely important.
A common misconception about philanthropy is that the whole process of giving is formulaic. Today, thousands of companies engage in corporate philanthropy around the globe, and each has a unique approach. It should come as no surprise that companies need to stay up-to-date on philanthropic strategies, just as they need to stay up-to-date on accounting practices or marketing techniques.
You know you've hit success when your company is featured on INC 5000's elite list of the fastest growing private companies in America. While looking through this list, we came across Alchemy Systems - and what caught our attention was not just its success in the food and beverage industry, but its commitment to giving back.
If there's one thing that executives at successful companies have in common, it's a sincere interest in keeping employees happy and fulfilled. Employee satisfaction is an important factor when it comes to achieving business goals - and these days, keeping employees happy isn't just about the number of zeroes on the paycheck.
