2011 Deloitte Volunteer IMPACT Survey

Survey offers new insights into volunteerism's connection to employee engagement and perceptions of positive corporate culture

New research from Deloitte suggests a powerful link between volunteerism and several drivers of employee perceptions of positive corporate culture. At a time when one-third of millennial employees are considering other career options, these findings may offer new insights about a powerful way to engage workers in that age group.

"Millennials who frequently participate in their company’s volunteer activities are:

  • Two times more likely to rate their corporate culture as very positive as compared to millennials who rarely or never volunteer (56 percent versus 28 percent)
  • More likely to be very proud to work for their company (55 percent versus 36 percent)
  • More likely to feel very loyal toward their company (52 percent versus 33 percent)
  • Nearly twice as likely to be very satisfied with the progression of their career (37 percent versus 21 percent)"
