Common Impact unlocks your company’s most strategic philanthropic asset – your employees – building the talent of your company and the strength of your communities at once.
The skills-based volunteer services we offer meet the goals of companies at any stage in their skills-based program development, from companies in the initial stages of thinking about a skills-based program to those wanting to scale and integrate a current, successful program. Because Common Impact is results oriented, we offer a flexible set of services for both our nonprofit clients and corporate partners.
For companies that are looking to develop a skills-based program for the first time or expand the impact of an existing skills-based program
Our program design service supports companies in building integrated, sustainable pro bono programs that extract maximum value for associates, companies and nonprofit partners. This begins with defining philanthropic, employee engagement, talent management and training goals to identify areas for skills-based program integration. We then design a program that synthesizes those goals into an integrated employee engagement model that extracts the most value for your nonprofit partners, your associates, and your company. You’ll be provided with a detailed framework for this program along with the operational, marketing and implementation plan that will bring it to life.
For companies that are looking for support in implementing a successful skills-based program
Our implementation services support companies in running their skills-based programs, including sourcing nonprofit partners, scoping projects, managing the project for success, and evaluating the project’s impact on the company, employee and nonprofit organization. This is a great offering for companies who want to build a robust skills-based program but don’t want to dedicate ongoing internal resources to running the program.
For companies that are looking to become the leaders in the field of skills-based and pro bono service
Our thought leadership services are designed for companies who want to showcase their leadership in the skillsbased service and pro bono marketplace. We partner with companies to conduct and publish research and build thought leadership platforms that help other organizations benefit from their unique approach to skills-based programs.
Some of our Specialities
Community Action Learning Projects: Teams of selected associates tackle a scoped, specific organizational challenge over the course of 3-6 months. Associates dedicate between 2-10 hours per week to these consulting engagements, developing leadership, functional and workplace skills. Projects cover a wide range of focus areas, including human resources, marketing, technology, operations, finance and strategy.
Executive Coaching: Senior leaders are matched to a nonprofit executive to provide strategic guidance on a specific organizational challenge. Through this one on one coaching model, senior leaders are pulled out of their comfort zone to apply their deep expertise in a new environment. Meanwhile, the nonprofit executive benefits from the functional acumen and external perspective of the coach.
Regional and Cross-Company Collaborations: Common Impact convenes multiple companies and organizations to address a challenge specific to a region. Partner with other companies in your area to expand the breadth and depth of your pro bono impact at once.
Day of Service Workshops and Seminars: Individual or teams of associates provide pro bono expertise to a group of nonprofits that share a similar need, highlighting the best practices and latest trends in a specific functional area.
