Be an HR HeRo

Kids That Do Good is an online resource for kids – and adults – who want to do something good to change the world.  It also functions as a matchmaker, introducing volunteers to causes they may not know about, and causes to the energetic and creative help they need.

What can Kids That Do Good do for you?  Put you in good company, to start.  Among Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For, leading organizations across the spectrum from technology to construction, pharmaceuticals, financial services and more, are putting their compensation where their mission is by paying employees for time spent in volunteer activities.

Supporting communities is good business, and businesses that do good are doing well.  Demonstrating ethical corporate citizenship is recognized as a key competitive advantage, raising a companies’ public profile and improving relations with the surrounding community, while increasing employee performance and productivity[1].

The best part is that charitable organizations on Kids That Do Good are always open to anyone, at any age, so families can volunteer together.  Your company’s pro-social initiatives can help improve work-life balance for your employees, giving them opportunities to share time with family members in a positive setting, putting values into action.  It’s a triple-win that makes YOU an HR HeRo!
