Employee Engagement

Company-Wide Opportunities:

Child Sponsorship
Through Save the Children’s child sponsorship program, employees can sponsor children in the U.S. or around the world and provide resources that empower entire communities — breaking the cycle of poverty for generations to come. Employees will foster meaningful relationships with their sponsored children through letters, photographs and frequent updates.

Calorie Cloud
Calorie Cloud is a platform developed to help you and your employees get active and healthy, while recycling the calories you collectively burn, turning them into life-saving nutrition for malnourished children around the globe through our relationship with MANA Nutrition. Your employees can connect over 100 fitness devices and applications to Calorie Cloud, making it flexible for varying fitness interests and goals.
