[Podcast] Strengthening Communities Through Corporate Volunteerism: A Conversation with Danielle Holly of Common Impact

October 31, 2016 Jamie Serino

"CSR is moving into a new phase where companies are integrating social impact and purpose into their operations. It's moving away from being a siloed function and is a part of the business." - Danielle Holly

In this episode of the Champions for Social Good Podcast, Jamie Serino speaks with Danielle Holly (@dholly8), CEO of Common Impact (@CommonImpact), about the organization’s work to build corporate social responsibility (CSR) and employee volunteer programs for companies that deliver real value to both the private and social sectors. Danielle talks about the transformation she’s seen in corporate social responsibility (CSR) over the past ten years from being a siloed function to being integrated into all parts of the business, and in particular how business units are increasingly using skilled-based volunteerism as a talent development experiential learning tool. Jamie and Danielle also discuss how companies and community organizations are measuring the real value of skills-based volunteer programs.
