What's In It For Me?

We know that giving is fun, but so is receiving.

Unite your passion foe gaming with your desire to make a difference

Evidence shows that philanthropic activities can improve mental health and increase overall life satisfaction.

Engage in healthy competition with colleagues and industry peers.

Studies indicate that friendly rivalry not only sharpens your skills but also boosts job satisfaction and engagement

Make your gaming hours count towards your company's volunteer programs.

Research from Deloitte suggests that companies with strong volunteering programs have higher employee morale.

Create lasting impact through your favourite hobby.

It’s proven that hobbies that positively impact others can increase  personal fulfilment and reduce stress levels.

Cultivate team-building and camaraderie within your organisation.

A meta-analyses published in the Journal of Applied Psychology found that team-building activities can significantly improve team performance.

Earn recognition and awards for young gaming skills.

According to LinkedIn survey, 41% of hiring managers consider volunteer work equivalent to full-time work experience, thus enhancing your personal brand and career prospects.

What's In It For My Company?

Making a difference is good for business.

Engage employees in a unique, fun, and meaningful way.

A PwC study revealed, “Employees most engaged in their organizations put in 57 percent more effort on the job—and are 87 percent less likely to resign—than employees who consider themselves disengaged.”

Foster team-building and boost morale.

Volunteer projects often require employees to work together outside of their usual work environment, fostering teamwork and strengthening relationships. UnitedHealth Group’s study found that 64% of employees who had previously volunteered reported developing better relationships with colleagues.

Increased engagement directly impacts the bottom line.

Providing volunteer opportunities goes far beyond feeling good. Employees who participate in these programs often become more engaged in their daily work, and increased engagement directly impacts the bottom line. A study done by SAP showed roughly $40 million revenue fluctuation when employee engagement rose or fell by by just 1%.

Promote your company's commitment to corporate social responsibility.

It’s well known that employees want to work for companies that care. In fact, Cone Research found that 79% of people prefer to work for a socially responsible company.

Increased Company Retention

Employees who are able to volunteer through their workplace report higher job satisfaction and are more likely to stay with the company. A study conducted by UnitedHealth Group found that 81% of employees who volunteered through work reported feeling better about their employer, which increased their loyalty to the company.

Leverage gaming to generate volunteer hours and charitable contributions.

Studies have shown that employees who engage in volunteer activities often feel more committed to their organization. For instance, the 2017 Deloitte Volunteer Impact Survey reported that 89% of employees believe that companies that sponsor volunteer activities offer a better overall working environment than those that do not.

Get involved in an innovative approach to corporate philanthropy.

CECP’s Giving in Numbers 2020 report indicated that companies leveraging such innovative methods not only increased their corporate societal investment by 13% compared to the five years prior, but also witnessed heightened employee satisfaction and loyalty.
