The way businesses interact with their staff is changing. It’s becoming more apparent that staff want more from their employers than a job and a paycheck.
This drive comes from a growing generation of millennials who expect their employer to be more than just a boss. They want coaches who focus on their development and understand their need for purpose in the workplace.
WHY IS ENGAGEMENT IMPORTANT?

How Can ShelterBox Help?
We form mutually beneficial, tailor-made corporate partnerships that focus on staff engagement, attracting talent and driving down staff turn-over.
We can send staff members on evaluation deployments post-disaster to see and measure the impact that the partnership has created, creating engaging and rewarding content for all your staff.
We have proven success in enhancing staff engagement in our partnerships with Aggreko and Beazley Furlong Ltd.
After working with Beazley Furlonge Ltd – a FTSE 250 insurance company – to engage staff globally, 78% agreed their employer was socially responsible and 83 percent felt CSR was the number one priority for the company to maintain.
Since the Aggreko partnership began in 2018, they have seen an 11% increase in staff engagement (measured through their employee engagement survey).
Laura Miller, Communications Business Partner at Aggreko says:
Whilst we cannot know for sure the rationale behind this change in quantitative score, this is a significant increase and I’m convinced it’s no coincidence that we see it following the announcement of our partnership with ShelterBox and the disasters we have supported them with.
How Can Shelterbox Help?
We have a wide range of campaigns, events, and training opportunities to roll out to staff.
On top of this, we provide compelling content and regular impact measurements to update your staff on how they are helping families who have lost their homes to disaster.
Our ShelterBox Way training days offer a unique view into the world of disaster response, led by our incredible ShelterBox Response Team volunteers who are at the forefront of what we do.
