When it comes to hosting group volunteer events for remote teams, the task can often feel like a daunting challenge. The multitude of options available can be overwhelming, and ensuring team engagement can be a real struggle. Moreover, many companies find themselves grappling with the constraints of limited resources. But what if we shared with you one company’s fantastic idea for low-lift campaigns that can effortlessly fill up your calendar year that you are free to implement with your own team as well?
WebPT empowers rehab therapy organizations with unified solutions designed to better engage patients, improve care, and grow their practice through their Practice Experience Management (PXM) platform. Beyond that, they are a team with a heart of gold. One of their eight core values is giving back through community outreach. They support this value with paid volunteer time off and through many Employee Resource Group (ERG) options. They also have an active social impact program with many volunteer options.
As a digital first work environment, with employees across the United States, remote volunteer events are essential. In order to champion their volunteer program and multiple ERGs, WebPT has created a genius, low-lift approach to their 2023 social impact program:
ERG (Employee Resource Group) Themed Kynd Kits
Kynd Kits are essentially volunteer projects in a box. Everything you need to do a meaningful project for someone in need is delivered right to your door. Kynd Kits offers corporate programs that can be sent directly to employee’s homes and each bundle can be customized to include kits that support causes you care about. Perfect for supporting ERGs and fostering team cohesion!
WebPT is passionate about championing their ERGs. And Kynd Kits is the perfect solution for creating remote volunteer events that can support each ERGs core values. Take a look at WebPT’s 2023 ERG Kynd Kit calendar:
