Register for the “How Giving Back Can Propel Your Organization Forward” Webinar


Working Well, in collaboration with the Oklahoma Hospital Association’s WorkHealthy Hospitals initiative, is hosting a webinar on “How Giving Back Can Propel Your Organization Forward.” Corporate giving and community involvement are more than just nice ideas -- they’re smart business strategies. Creating a culture of giving in your organization can pay dividends in the form of an enhanced workforce, and studies show it can lead to a higher level of employee engagement and wellbeing. Working for a purpose-centered, socially responsible organization is even more attractive to the millennial generation, who are set to become the largest percentage of our workforce.  


Corporate giving and community involvement are becoming more widely recognized as essential elements of a comprehensive employee wellness initiative. According to results from the Ninth Annual Employer-Sponsored Health and Well-Being Survey released in 2018 by Fidelity Benefits Consulting,

72% of employers include community involvement as a part of their wellbeing strategy through initiatives like collection drives, team-building volunteer programs, charitable giving and paid time off to volunteer. An additional 21% of employers are considering adding community involvement to their wellbeing strategy. The wellness industry is also seeing a trend in encouraging charitable giving as a wellness incentive strategy, with 23% of companies reporting that they do so.


This webinar will discuss the benefits of giving back and tips on how to incorporate generosity and volunteerism into your company culture. The following guest speakers will share their experiences and how corporate giving has impacted their organizations:

  • Sally Ehrenfried, Senior Manager of Philanthropy and Volunteer Engagement with Blackbaud, Inc. in Charleston, SC.; and
  • Aley Cristelli, Cities and Government Sector Coordinator with Norman Regional Health System in Norman, OK.


The webinar will take place October 24 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. (EDT). To register, visit here. If you have any questions, contact Emily O’Sullivan at
