If you follow our blog, you know that we’re in the middle of a campaign to raise funds and awareness for men’s health. Get all the background information on Movember in Brad’s blog post and read Allison’s profile on a couple Baudvillans who are involved.
Raising money for a cause is always a feel-good event, and the benefits to your organization go beyond the charitable contribution.
One of the most important critical factors to retaining staff and maintaining employee engagement is employee sentiment that they have a purpose. In fact, Inc.com put having a purpose number one on their list of ten things employees want. When you offer employees social responsibility opportunities, you help them achieve a greater sense of purpose. You also reduce their stress and distraction by doing all the coordination for them. In short, you meet employees’ needs for social responsibility without losing any productivity. It's a win-win.
It’s also FUN.
During the month of November, our team is committing to the very important and serious issue of men’s health. We’re simply doing it in a light-hearted manner. After all, what’s not funny about a group of grown men growing mustaches together?
Our amazing Movember coordinator and designer April (read more about her mustache fascination) is engaging the entire company with fun posters, regular emails, and weekly activities. We’re making them all available to you here and in the Recognition Resource Center so whether you’re growing your own 'stache or making a small announcement, you can do Movember in style.
