Custom Corporate Volunteer Events
WeHero is on a mission to empower 10 million people with the tools and opportunities to give back easily and impactfully. That’s a lot of people, we know. We also know that not every person, company, or partner is the same. Instead of taking a “one-size fits all” approach, we’ve chosen to make the most out of our differences. WeHero is committed to designing custom corporate volunteer events that meet each company’s specific needs. By building customized volunteer events, we help companies deliver impact to causes they are particularly passionate about. An event built and executed with passion is an event that creates an impact – and impact is what’s important.
We’ve been building custom corporate volunteer events since the beginning. In fact, many of our most popular events started off as a custom event, created for a specific company. By helping companies give back to causes they care about, the long term relationship and commitment between a company and a cause, grow.
So, how do you create a custom corporate volunteer event? We thought it would be worthwhile to share our approach to constructing events specifically built around the customer, the cause, and most importantly, the impact.
1. Identifying Goals
Starting off, we like to identify the specific interests of a company. Some companies have target CSR or volunteer goals, while others express a desire to support a particular cause. We were once approached by a paper company interested in contributing to reforestation efforts while also increasing their employee involvement. Once the company’s goals were established, WeHero worked to create an impactful event, focused on reforestation efforts, CSR goals, and improvement in overall employee satisfaction.
2. Research Impact
When building a custom volunteer event, we work to ensure that our efforts are delivering impact. That being said, we’re not experts on every cause. Before setting out on creating an event, we do a lot of listening, reading, and researching. In order to deliver measurable impact, we choose to work with only the highest quality nonprofits.
3. Non-profit Partnership
Once our team has done the homework, we confidently go-forth in teaming up with vetted non-profit partners. Working closely with these partners, we develop a mutual understanding of the highest-impact approach to creating large group events. We want every corporate volunteer event to have both short-term and long-term impacts, and we are committed to making that happen.
4. Event Design
After receiving feedback and guidance from our non-profit partners, the WeHero team begins designing an impactful custom event, tailored to the needs of both company and cause. As experts in planning large scale corporate events, we understand the detailed preparation needed to create events that are fun, easy, and engaging. Whether the event lasts for 60 minutes or for 3 hours, we believe that the best volunteer events are the fun ones!
5. Event Execution & Long Term Impact
Like we said earlier, our events are created to deliver both short and long term impact. Once the event is completed, we share a detailed reporting of the immediate impact created. Each employee is able to see the results of their efforts, while also being given additional opportunities to continue their support. The customized event then becomes one of our available offerings and our impact continues to grow.
