Engaged for Good

Engaged For Good

It is an exciting time for us at Engaged HR as we gear up to announce the winner of the Engaged for Good™ program! Earlier this Spring we launched our charitable program which provides $2,500 in free services to a non-profit organization who has an HR initiative they would like to see completed in 2018. One of the best things about the Engaged for Good™ program is that our partner, Vancouver law firm Roper Greyell, is matching the free HR services with $2,500 in certain pro bono legal services as well. We accepted applications from across the country throughout the month of April and received 10 great applications from very worthy organizations. Some of these organizations we already know and love so we decided that the fairest way to pick a winning project is to do a draw!

Join us Tuesday, May 29th at 11 am PST when we will be doing a Facebook Live to make the draw and announce the winner!

While we wait in anticipation for next week, we would like to acknowledge the great organizations who applied:

  • ABC Head Start Society – Edmonton, AB
  • Canadian Society for Information Children – Burnaby, BC
  • Career Connections – Brandon, MB
  • HeadWay – Victoria Epilepsy and Parkinson’s Centre – Victoria, BC
  • Independent Living Housing Society Of Greater Victoria – Victoria, BC
  • Nanaimo Affordable Housing Society – Nanaimo, BC
  • Pacific Centre Family Services Association – Colwood, BC
  • RAVEN (Respecting Aboriginal Values & Environmental Needs) – Victoria, BC
  • Seniors Serving Seniors – Victoria, BC
  • Shekinah Homes Society – Victoria, BC

A big thank you to everyone who has applied and we wish everyone good luck at Tuesday’s draw.

 

About Engaged For Good

Every day, we witness non-profit organizations work hard to deliver services that change lives and transform communities. Funding challenges often require these organizations to prioritize service to clients over service to employees, and the organization’s human resources needs take a back seat.

At Engaged HR we want to help to balance this focus, so we created Engaged for Good™, a community engagement project designed to provide HR services and supports to community organizations. The Engaged for Good™ project offers a non-profit organization with HR services, valued up to $2,500.

Engaged for Good™ is our small way of giving back by helping a non-profit organization fund the HR projects that will help build an amazing workplace for those who give so much to our communities. At Engaged HR, we know that by helping an organization create a great place to work, we can help that organization change the world.

We are also excited to have Roper Greyell LLP, one of Western Canada’s most respected and recognized workplace law practices, join Engaged for Good™ offer a matching contribution of up to $2,500 in free legal services as well. As an organization that strongly values community contribution, Roper Greyell is eager to partner with Engaged HR on this local, community initiative. Together, we strive to make a positive and lasting contribution to the meaningful work that non-profit organizations carry out on a daily basis.

Every organization’s HR needs are unique, which is why the HR and legal expertise provided through Engaged for Good™ will be tailored to have the greatest impact. The project aims to work with organizational leaders to support people in the ways that matter most! Not sure how your organization might benefit? A few examples of HR tools and supports that could be provided through the Engaged for Good™ project:

  • Job Descriptions
  • Employee Handbook
  • Employment Contracts
  • Compensation Study
  • Policy Development

If you are a non-profit organization in Canada who needs HR help, we’d love to lighten the load for you. Tell us how we can help you better serve your clients by taking some people management pain points off your plate!
