Each quarter, the Engage Mentoring Executive Talent Roundtables meet and have a focused discussion on a topic related to attracting, retaining, and developing talent.

At our upcoming Engage Mentoring Executive Talent Roundtable, in Indianapolis, the focus topic will be Improving Employee Engagement Through Structured Volunteerism. To prepare for the discussion, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Craig Smaagard, Regional Vice President for Thrivent Financial, and founder of Activate Indy.

Some of the topics we discussed include the importance of engaging employees with meaningful opportunities to volunteer for worthy nonprofit organizations.

You can listen to the full interview by following this link. Be sure to weigh-in on this topic by sharing your thoughts and what strategies and tactics your company uses to promote volunteerism.
