In 2020, as the company now has 1,100 employees in offices across the country, AmCap recognized an unprecedented opportunity to positively impact communities across the country and hosted its first annual Gives Day. Back. Held on the second Thursday in July of each year, Gives Back Day is a day of intentional giving designed to empower the entire company, its employees and partners to get involved and thus give back.

This year, AmCap showed up and participated in its annual Gives Back Day on July 8e! With impact in dozens of communities nationwide, team members have become active with over 60 nonprofits. Together, they provided more than 29,000 pounds of food to the hungry and filled 400 backpacks with school supplies for children in need. They saved 153 lives with blood donations, built three houses and an animal shelter, raised thousands of pounds of essentials for charities across the country, and much more.

CEO Garrett clayton noticed the tremendous impact the company was able to have on that one day of service. “I cannot thank our team enough for being the ‘helpers’ in the world on July 8e. Giving back brings me so much joy and I’m so proud that our organization makes it a priority throughout the year. ”

With its year-round giving culture and brand new Give Back Day, AmCap Home Loans has tapped into something that is becoming increasingly vital to employee satisfaction and retention for all businesses across all industries. , giving meaning to their mission.

Millennials especially want to work for companies that make a difference, with 80% of millennials surveyed saying they “would be more motivated and engaged at work if they felt their employer had a job, according to a Deloitte study. positive impact on society “. In another Fidelity Investments survey, 66% of 1,200 people polled and 75% of millennials polled said it was important to them that companies get involved in a philanthropic way and support a range of causes.

In addition to attracting employees whose values ​​align with charitable giving, the organization of philanthropic outreach helps create a positive work culture by providing opportunities for team building and increasing interactions between the management and employees.

Another aspect of employee satisfaction that AmCap has tapped into with its Gives Back Day is allowing individual branches and team members to decide how they will participate. For example, members of the Phoenix, Arizona team volunteered to distribute bottled water during periods of 100 degree heat, while the Cookeville, Tennessee The branch has chosen to organize a donation campaign for foster children to honor a teammate who has their own foster children at home.

The benefits of allowing team members to have a say in how they give back are numerous. For companies like AmCap with branches across the country, the type of charity that will have the greatest impact will vary. For AmCap, in Phoenix he distributed water, while in Miami it provided goods to the homeless, and in Alexandria, LA he was donating supplies to a women’s shelter.

People will feel more motivated to get involved when it is for a cause they believe in and which they believe will have the greatest positive impact.

The data is clear: spending time and resources on community involvement is good for business. It inspires confidence in leadership, builds relationships within the company and increases employee motivation, engagement and productivity.
