Welcome to arguably the biggest month of the year for corporate volunteering and engagement, April! Not only have you been stressing about getting your taxes in but also you've also been thinking about delivering high-impact volunteer and engagement experiences to your company. We're cheering you on this month as we celebrate National Volunteer Month, Earth Month, and so much more!
What do we have in store for you today? New WeHero Learn content, new WeHero 100, upcoming industry webinars we're speaking on, events we're attending, and our thoughts on the new season of Ted Lasso.
Let's dive in
The WeHero Learning Center has been a little quiet lately. Only makes sense that we come out with a total banger of an interview! Our co-founder interviewed Jessica Rodell, William H. Willson Distinguished Chair, Professor in Management at the University of Georgia - Terry College of Business, and one of the leading experts in corporate volunteering and engagement. Some of you may know her from her piece in Harvard Business Review.
Jessica and Ben sat down to talk about what makes amazing volunteer programs tick, how companies can better engage their employees, and new research that Jessica is preparing to release. Take a few minutes out of your day to put your learning caps on and watch this video.
Our Co-founder, Ben Sampson, is joining Rebecca Chen to talk about the power of Corporate Volunteering and the impact it has on employees' experience. Register now for free!
