The State of Global Pro Bono
  • Publication Date:
    December 2014

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.
