The Best Workplaces to Give Back list acknowledges those organisations that best empower their people to have a positive social impact through donations, fundraising, and volunteering. We invited organisations from all sizes and industries to participate by telling us how they help their staff make a difference. Good Company experts with help from external partners assessed and ranked the nominees using three main criteria:

  1. Impact: We consider the approach and reach of the organisations’ impact by examining the type of programs offered (ie, volunteer leave, payroll giving, etc.). The more ambitious these programs, the higher the score.

  1. Context: We consider the broader context in which the programs are designed by looking into other aspects of corporate responsibility and whether organisations have broader commitments such as a Reconciliation Action Plan, Diversity strategy, recycling programs, etc. Those organisations with more holistic value propositions receive higher scores.

  1. Innovation: Organisations with unique and innovative activities that stand out receive an extra boost in their scores.
