Upwardly Global creates tailored volunteer events for companies. Volunteering offers many benefits to your workplace:
- Corporate volunteers develop greater loyalty to their employer when they are involved in meaningful social activity beyond work.
- Employees develop appreciation for inclusion and diversity, improving their ability to engage with their team or clients.
- Volunteer opportunities improve recruitment, particularly among high-skilled, younger workers.
- Cross-promotion builds brand awareness with a dynamic group of immigrant professionals.
- Employees expand their social networks to support a wider range of internal referrals.
Volunteering also benefits immigrant and refugee job seekers: Corporate volunteers share insight into the U.S. workplace and build candidates’ professional networks.
Volunteer opportunities range from short-term events to longer-term engagements. They can take place on-site at your company or in a virtual, online format.
Corporate volunteer options include:
Connect with Upwardly Global job seekers at an interactive networking session. Company volunteers gain cross-cultural communication skills while supporting immigrant and refugee job seekers in practicing interview skills and networking.
Practice cross-cultural communication skills such as coaching and providing feedback. A mock interview is a practice session that increases job seekers’ confidence, skills, and interview techniques.
Volunteers connect with job seekers for longer-term support with networking and polishing professional English-language skills.
Corporate leaders share perspectives and tips with job seekers, while also learning from the lived experience of immigrants and refugees.
