The Employee Volunteering Awards


Companies with skills-based employee volunteering programmes outperform their competitors by 25% on any stock exchange in the world.

The Employee Volunteering Awards are determined by four benchmark measures, based on client's 2012 performance.

The benchmarks include:

Program Reach – The percentage of employees at the company that participate in the GWYGA solution; a measurement of communications success and access.

Connection Rate – The percentage of unique visitors that took an action, such as referred/signed-up for a volunteer opportunity, or tracked hours through the GWYGA solution.

Volunteer Rate – The number of hours tracked through the GWYGA solution for every 1,000 employee volunteers per year at the company.

Volunteer Impact – The average number of hours tracked per employee volunteer. This benchmark is determined by calculating the total number of hours tracked by the total number of employees that participated at the company.
