"Pivoting our company’s volunteering and pro bono services to an online model during COVID-19 was no easy task. We successfully made the transition thanks to our partnership with Visit.org and were able to offer a full schedule of customized virtual volunteer opportunities, in support of our non-profit partners, to our employees around the world.”

Background:

Moody’s believes in a world where more people have access to opportunity, and everyone has what they need to grow and thrive. It is committed to opening the door to a better future through its global corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, empowering people around the world with the knowledge, resources and confidence they need to succeed.

Challenge:

An essential component of Moody’s corporate social responsibility efforts is encouraging all employees to share their passions and knowledge through volunteering. Moody’s TeamUp® is the company’s annual employee engagement program where the global CSR team, along with CSR Impact Leaders in local offices, plan over 200 service projects across the globe. Moody’s employee engagement strategy is focused on increasing opportunities for employees to contribute their skills and expertise in order to make a greater impact on their nonprofit partners achieving their mission. In 2019, Moody’s aimed to grow the number of skills-based offerings in the Moody’s TeamUp program by 40%.

Solution:

To vet and manage 40% more nonprofit organizations as well curate a selection of meaningful and impactful volunteer projects for its employees, Moody’s partnered with Visit.org in 2019 to pilot three markets: New York, Hong Kong, and Edinburgh. The partnership with Visit.org offers Moody’s employees a new set of skills-based opportunities that align with the company’s CSR focus areas and generate measurable impact. The data Visit.org provides complements Moody’s efforts to measure the impact of its social investments using the Impact Genome Project – the world’s leading evidence-based standard to measure, report, and benchmark social outcomes.

Visit.org was also able to expand its database to include Moody’s current community partnerships, allowing the CSR team to efficiently manage a successful employee-engagement program with one organizing body. The team can now participate in social impact experiences that best balance their passions and interests with culturally sensitive community needs.
