For the 2015 Millennial Impact Report, we studied the relationships between Millennial employees and their managers as well as how those relationships influence engagement in company-sponsored cause work.
Through this year’s research, we’ve developed greater insight into the preferences of Millennials and managers when it comes to volunteering, donating and participating in cause work through their company. We’ve organized our findings and the following key statistics into three sections: Give, Serve and Inspire. Give includes attitudes and preferences for making charitable donations through formal workplace giving campaigns and similar donation drives. Serve deals with employee volunteerism, including employee preferences, managerial attitudes and examples of company volunteer actions. Finally, Inspire explores the relationships that influence employees and managers to volunteer and donate through company cause work.
