Volunteer IMPACT Survey suggests that employers who connect the dots
between talent and volunteerism have the opportunity to strengthen
employee engagement. According to the study, Millennials who frequently
participate in workplace volunteer activities are more likely to be very

and be very satisfied with the progression of their career.
"Corporate social responsibility and community involvement are
increasingly important to companies and their employees," noted Adam
Miller, president and CEO of Cornerstone OnDemand. "Our work with the
non-profit community, combined with our on-going dialogue with the CSR (News - Alert)
leaders of our enterprise clients, enabled us to recognize the unmet
need for both non-profits and corporations to effectively manage
volunteer programs. Our volunteer management solution will allow for
skills-based volunteer matching, more effectively empowering volunteers
and non-profit organizations alike."
Empowering people and communities through volunteerism is a top priority
for Cornerstone and the Cornerstone
OnDemand Foundation, which helps to provide non-profits with talent
management software and services for managing their people and
increasing their impact in the communities they serve.
"Given our extensive work with many leading non-profits, we recognize
the positive impact volunteers can have on those in need," said Julie
Brandt, executive director of the Cornerstone OnDemand Foundation. "We
believe Cornerstone's Volunteer Management solution will enhance the
effectiveness of these volunteers in making a difference in communities
around the world each and every day."
