Best Workplaces to Give Back 2019

GoodCompany, is proud to announce the results of the ‘Top 40 Best Workplaces to Give Back in Australia 2019’. This year the competition was tougher than ever, with over 100 entries.

The publicly listed energy company Origin Energy has been identified as the Best Workplace to Give Back in 2019

The results indicate that there is now far more emphasis in the workplace to give back to the community and empower employees to take action via payroll giving, paid volunteer leave, fundraising activities, charity gift cards, sponsorship and other pro-social activities. Therefore, it is found that corporates are placing more emphasis on workplace giving.

Results Analysis

The 2019 Program’s results found 88% of companies believe community engagement was extremely important to the success of their business, and their leaders were happy to share and support their employees’ passion for the community.

In response, corporate paid volunteer leave has jumped up from 87% in 2018 to 93%, when only 34% offered two or more days. In 2019 this has jumped up to 46% offering more than two days, therefore companies see the importance of the impact this has on their team and culture.

Additionally, an increasing number of companies are now setting a budget to support workplace giving – up from 61% in 2018 to 70% this year. Also trending is the rising number of companies matching payroll giving up from 80% in 2018 to 85% in 2019.

The survey also found 63% of companies are now allocating a budget to match donations, 58% matching payroll giving, and 93% offering paid volunteer leave (up from 88% in 2018).

What’s also of significance is of these companies with allocated budgets, 44% allow up to $100 per employee compared to only 33% in 2018. A further 37% of companies are willing to match up to $1,000 per employee and 17% have uncapped matching.

In 2018, only 11% offered uncapped matching, proving the trend that companies are steering towards a prosocial mindset and encouraging employees to do ‘good’ in the community around them.

This year there has also been an increase in how often companies communicate their workplace giving programs to their teams, from 30% relaying communications quarterly in 2018, increasing this year to more frequent and regular communication with 34% monthly and 17% weekly (up from 12% in 2018).
