What is Employee Community Involvement?

Employee Community Involvement (ECI) refers to employer-supported voluntary community action by employees for charitable or developmental purposes. ECI includes payroll giving, ad hoc monetary and in-kind donations, fund-raisers and special-purpose campaigns, and volunteering. All of these are pro-actively encouraged by employers, and supported in various ways, ranging from financial investment in company policies, management and infrastructure to financial matching of employee contributions.


Ultimate success of ECI programmes depends on active and visible involvement by company leadership and we offer a tailored service undertaking research on the company concerned, conducting workshops with key stakeholders and staff to ensure a relevant and tailored programme with buy-in from all stakeholders, providing options of validated NGOs and then providing roll-out and marketing support as well as monthly maintenance and quarterly reports.
