The latest version of the Giving Thoughts Series, entitled "The State of Global Pro Bono," is now available to download for free. Authored by Amanda MacArthur, Vice President, Global Pro Bono and Engagement at PYXERA Global (click here to read our recent Q&A with Amanda), the piece looks more closely at the growing practice of global pro bono, in particular analyzing how companies typically structure programs, recruit and prepare employees, and assess the effectiveness of assignments.
Introduction from "The State of Global Pro Bono"
Employee engagement is an oft-cited challenge for large corporations, already overtaxed by an increasingly competitive landscape, volatile market forces, and shareholder demands. The growing practice of global pro bono, in which companies send employees on cross-border skills-based volunteer programs, is an effective approach to inspiring a more motivated and engaged workforce. The generous sharing of talent also contributes to social impact and economic growth, while developing global leadership skills and perspective for employees. This report presents survey findings collected by PYXERA Global about global pro bono programs, their design and mission, cross-sector partnerships, and triple-benefit impact.
