Research that the Karma Currency Foundation have undertaken with Harvard University shows a positive relationship between happiness and giving. And we all know that happy staff are productive staff.
The Karma Currency Foundation has created Workplace Giving – Minus the Work ™. It’s easy to establish, simple to administer and enjoyable to use. The interactive, engaging and empowering online workplace giving environment lets your employees support over 150 charities with 1000’s of directed projects from finding cures to cancer, to rescuing a rainforest.
The system is a breeze for payroll as there is only one invoice, one payment, one transaction and one receipt each pay cycle. Plus, Matched Giving can be turned off and on depending on the needs and budgets of the organization.
The quarterly positive outcome report will put a smile on the face of every HR manager as they receive a report that drills down to which organizations and directed projects are supported by their staff. At months end they can report to staff and stakeholders how many miles of landmines they helped clear, how many midwives they helped train and how many wells they helped dig.
