Charleston-based cloud software company Blackbaud recently released its 2019 Social Responsibility Report in which it states that almost 9 out of 10 of its employees say their work in the social good space is one factor why they decided to join the firm.
The report also found that that 89 percent of Blackbaud employees have volunteered in the past year and that 59 percent volunteer more often since they joined the company. Additionally, Blackbaud reported that it donates 3 percent of its pretax profit and that almost 50 percent of its charitable donations represent its commitment to education, peace, justice and ending poverty.
"We're proud to support people and organizations working to build a better world – and we want them to be proud of us, too," Mike Gianoni, Blackbaud President and CEO, said in a press release. "Remaining transparent and accountable is a huge part of that as we work together to help good take over. A year after releasing our first Social Responsibility Report, we're continuing to think critically about our responsibilities as a technology provider, employer, public company, environmental steward and member of the global community, as well as challenging ourselves to do more."
