~STUDIES SHOW that employees who feel connected to their community are healthier, happier, and more productive.
And Employees who feel more engaged with theircommunity – while @ work – can help boost working relationships, job satisfaction, and the company’s bottom line.

United Way research shows that people want to do more than simply check a payroll deduction box, or write a check.
They want to make a difference – to be a part of a larger effort to make their community a better place.
When that happens in the workplace – donating,volunteering or spreading the word – it adds value to the employee experience and your company's economy.
