There’s no better way to create some excitement for the campaign than to plan some fun and engaging activities for your team.
Laval International is a great example of that. They engage their suppliers in the process, securing prizes that support their United Way workplace campaign.
“We love to be able to offer our employees an incentive for giving back. The employees really like having the opportunity to participate,” says Sandra Istefan, the United Way Champion at Laval International.
Laval International also asks employees during their onboarding process to consider making a gift to United Way.
“There is no better time to be able to explain to our new employees how passionate we are about supporting United Way. We know that every dollar helps children and their families in our community. In almost all cases once they understand what United Way is doing in Windsor and Essex County, they don’t hesitate to sign up for payroll deduction,” says Istefan.
