Paycor Offers Insights to Increase Employee Engagement Through Community Involvement

A 2016 survey from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) found that 36% of organizations cite employee engagement as a top workforce management challenge. And with five generations of employees comprising today’s workforce, employers and HR teams are struggling to answer the question: how do you create a culture of engagement that employees take pride in and want to represent?

A recent Cincinnati Business Courier article highlights the importance of offering charitable giving and community involvement opportunities for employees and how these programs can help to increase engagement across an organization. The article describes how Paycor and two other Cincinnati-based firms have launched successful employee giving programs that support the community and allow associates to connect with organizations or events that are near and dear to their hearts.

Since day one, Paycor CEO and founder Bob Coughlin has been committed to making a difference in the community. It’s his vision and passion that led Paycor to launch the Community Partners program, an associate-run community service initiative that offers employees the vehicle to initiate and/or participate in events that benefit local communities. Since the inception of Community Partners, Paycor associates have supported more than 750 events and volunteered more than 24,000 hours in the community.
