I've just been asked by our MD what the best approach is to making a charitable donation to an employee.
An employee of ours is going to be sleeping rough for the night in our city centre to raise awareness for YMCA. She is currently just above halfway to her target of £500 and it seems as though she might be struggling to reach it. Our MD wants to help her and support/encourage our employees to go out and be passionate. However his main concern is whether this will set a precedent for the rest of our workforce. With that, it will naturally mean an increase in cost if all employees then want to start raising money for charity.
Where do we then draw the line- 'We will give, but only XX amount' 'We will match what other employees give but only if it's under XX amount'
Does anyone else do anything similar to this? How have you communicated it to employees, has the take up been high?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated- Thanks!!
