CORPORATE VOLUNTEER INNOVATION

In Team Rubicon, empowerment starts with the individual 

Team Rubicon is actively shifting the narrative around corporate volunteerism by putting it in the hands of the individual instead of the company team.  

"Your company has great people, so why shouldn’t they have a bigger stake in their own social responsibility?"

BRIAN / TEAM RUBICON EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT LEAD

We view volunteer engagement as a scale with many arms, balancing things like a member’s satisfaction with their serviceteam retention and the desire to keep servingand empowerment. Each one is closely connected. But our heavyweight commitment and the central piece of Team Rubicon’s mission that sets us apart from other volunteer organizations is individual empowerment.  

Volunteer members bring the skills, experience, and the drive and Team Rubicon acts as their vehicle to continue serving communities on their worst days.  

This is what our model for corporate volunteerism looks like 

Bringing partners and employees into the mission 

We invite employees with a partner company to boost Team Rubicon’s readiness before, during, and after disaster strikes. Because most of our services involve helping communities impacted by a severe weather event or crisis, scheduling time to volunteer isn’t as impactful as being ready when people need us.  

Empowering employees to become Team Rubicon members  

Partner employees are asked to take ownership in the mission by signing up as a Team Rubicon volunteer—a “Greyshirt”—and becoming a full-fledged member. This simple step opens volunteer opportunities as a team and individually for events happening in their area. To do this, Team Rubicon has built innovative technology solutions that can pinpoint and notify volunteer members in the vicinity of an event. 

Preparing volunteers through readiness training  

Team Rubicon provides new members with short online training courses—it’s a way to start everyone on the same page. Through standardized online trainings, we’re taking the lift off company representatives by safely preparing their employees to join us as volunteers.    

Serving communities as partners and teammates  

Employees of our partner organizations who join and serve on Team Rubicon’s mission are able to have a truly authentic experience helping people when disaster strikes. At the end of the day, their time commitment will be more meaningful as an official team member and reflect positively on their company as a partner with Team Rubicon.

"You know who you are and you know what you’ve done; you’ve done what most can’t or simply won’t do. Continue to be a leader with your families, communities and peers. Team Rubicon has a place for people like you."
