Transform lives with workplace giving
A workplace giving program can help your business recruit the best talent, increase employee engagement, and lead to higher productivity.
80% of employees believe that having a workplace giving program makes their company a better place to work and demonstrates a genuine commitment to the community (Good2Give, 2015).
Your employees choose the amount of their salary they wish to donate and it will be deducted directly with their pay — giving them an instant tax benefit. It’s easy to set up and easy for your employees to participate.
- 86% of employees stated they were proud to work for their company because of their sponsored workplace giving programme (Good2Give, 2015)
- Companies that offer donations via payroll see four times the rate of participation than programs that don’t (Benevity, 2015)
- Organisations with high employee engagement experience 2.5 times greater revenue growth than organisations with low employee engagement and have reported profitability up to 16% higher than average (Australian Charities Fund Research, 2014).
Oxfam’s workplace giving program will appeal to all of your employees – with issues ranging from access to clean water in Bangladesh, empowering Indigenous women in Australia and providing food security in Niger, there is something for everyone to feel passionate about.
Our Corporate Partnerships team is available to ensure your workplace giving program runs smoothly. They can even help to organise personalised activities which also help to boost staff engagement, such as Work for Oxfam Day, Oxfam Trailwalker, and/or arranging a guest speaker to attend a staff event.
One person in three in the world lives in poverty. But we see a future in which no one does. Join our movement for change and help people help themselves in the fight against poverty.
