CHICAGO (June 5, 2019) - For a fast-growing company with a geo-diverse team, finding new ways to improve culture and bring employees together is paramount. Percent Pledge leverages philanthropy to tackle those challenges, and is providing Aclaimant with a competitive advantage amongst today’s socially-conscious talent. Combining unique workplace giving technology, local volunteer services, and transparent impact reporting, Percent Pledge makes it easy to make an impact.
By introducing Percent Pledge’s workplace giving platform, Aclaimant was able to improve company culture by adding personalized giving to their employee suite of employee benefits. Their personalized “Pledge Portal” enables each team member to donate a small % of their monthly budget to the charitable causes of their choice.
“Aclaimant saw the value of improving company culture through giving back,” said Joel Pollick, founder of Percent Pledge. “And they wanted a solution that would enable each employee to support their favorite causes, which is a core tenet of our bottom-up approach to workplace giving.”
Once employees take the 3 minutes to #MakeThePledge, the platform then automates their donation, archives their tax receipts, and delivers ongoing transparency through bi-weekly personalized “Pledge Reports”. Aclaimant has long been heralded as innovators within their industry and adopting this new approach to workplace giving was no exception. It was also a natural fit with their company values. "One of the core foundations that Aclaimant was built on was helping people,'' said David Wald, CEO and Co-founder of Aclaimant. “Percent Pledge helps us extend that philosophy by allowing our employees to easily interact and support the charities and non-profits that are important to them and important to our company!"
Having launched their own personalized Pledge Portal, the two companies plan to grow the partnership by leveraging Percent Pledge’s volunteer concierge offering to further connect their employees with the causes they are most passionate about.
