      Employee Engagement/Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives

      Career Services can be a helpful part of your Employee Engagement strategy. As businesses are trying to create a triple bottom line approach to business models – attending to profit, people and planet – our department can assist with the people aspect. According to Gallup’s State of the American Workplace Report, only 33% of employees are engaged at work. Gallup’s employee engagement survey examines 12 elements of engagement that are proven performance management practices. An element of engagement to note is one’s level of agreement with the following statement “this last year, I have had the opportunities at work to learn and grow”. While that mostly refers to internal professional development of employees, we would also add that people learn and grow through helping others. The following are examples of ways your team can partner with Career Services to help community college students:

      • Informational Interviews – stand conversations about one’s professional journey
      • Volunteering – helping students with resumes, cover letters, and interview skills
      • Mentorship – a more formal ongoing relationship that supports the student on their career path
      • Job Shadowing – allow students to follow an employee for the day to observe and learn about the business, role, and industry


      Office Tours / Site Visits

      Students visit a company site and receive a tour of the grounds and overview of the business.
