SELFLESSLY ACQUIRES KANSAS CITY-BASED EMPLOYEE VITALS, A COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PLATFORM
Indianapolis, IN: Selflessly announces the acquisition of a community engagement platform, Employee Vitals. The software enhances the core Selflessly platform with thought leadership, corporate social responsibility education and philanthropic personalization for users. Employee Vitals was designed to boost internal culture by helping a company celebrate “social impact personality types” and further empower employee philanthropic engagement.
“Our goal has been to break down the barriers of strategic giving and to give employees choice on how they want to create impact. Now, we can give our partners and their employees unique tools to really ‘own’ their impact and lean into how they can continue to contribute in an inclusive way. Think of it like the Meyers Briggs of philanthropy and the data that is created through the tool adds a new dimension of a company and employee’s role in corporate citizenship.” said Josh Driver, CEO, Selflessly. “It’s an honor to work with well-known thought leaders in our space to stop the growing divide in the corporate philanthropy space.”
Employee Vitals was founded in 2018 in response to increasing requests from community engagement professionals and human resources executives for a simple, uplifting tool that not only better connects employees to the company’s charitable giving and volunteering programs, but also positively reinforces the ways each individual employee chooses to give back to favorite causes.
“We are excited about the addition of Employee Vitals to the Selflessly offering,” said Ann-Marie Harrington, Employee Vitals co-founder. “Selflessly–already a powerful engagement tool in its own right–will now do even more to enhance both corporate and employee satisfaction with workplace giving programs.”
Laura McKnight, Employee Vitals co-founder, added, “We’re gratified and honored that Selflessly will continue to make this content available to high-performing teams in workplaces where making a difference is a priority.”
Selflessly will begin rolling out the new platform with their corporate partners later this month and a more robust integration coming this summer.
