A donation more powerful than money

Studies show that organised workplace volunteering boosts employee engagement and retention and improves your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) image.

Volunteering means engagement and competitive advantage

According to the Centre for Volunteering, employees who volunteer are more likely to feel engaged, want to stay in and be satisfied with their jobs — and higher engagement increases employer profitability and productivity.

A recent study for NAB also found that candidates are increasingly considering the CSR credentials of an employer before signing on, and another separate study discovered that one in three people want to volunteer through their workplace. You can be the employer who gives them that opportunity.

Choosing a volunteering program

One low cost, time-efficient way for your organisation to reap the benefits of workplace volunteering is by joining Red25, the corporate blood donation program of the Australian Red Cross Blood Service.

Why corporate blood donation?

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has been a long-term member of Red25. Assistant Commissioner of the ATO, Adam Kendrick, is vocal about the benefits of Red25 for his staff members and organisation.

“Red25 can boost your organisation’s community dimension, introducing an outward focus that broadens perspectives, brings people together, and unites them towards a common goal for the common good,” he says.

“A program like Red25 contributes to a healthy corporate culture.”

Other Red25 member organisations as diverse as NAB, Woolworths and the Australian Defence Force have seen the benefits of partnering with us, some of which are:

  • Literally save lives
    One blood donation saves up to three lives. It’s a donation more powerful than money.
  • Low time commitments
    We don’t ask employees for days or weeks: giving blood only takes about an hour and there are no minimum time requirements. Employees decide when and how often they want to give.
    Red25 can organise free buses to bring your staff to and from local blood donation centres or we may be able to bring our mobile centres right to your premises.
  • Easy set-up and coordination, with support all the way
    Dedicated Red25 staff will help your organisation set up and coordinate your blood donation group(s). We supply all promotional material and can visit your premises to run presentations and events.
    Once you’re up and running, volunteer Red25 Coordinators from your own organisation coordinate donations and blood drives, with help from us only a phone call away.
  • No cost
    It doesn’t cost your organisation anything to be part of Red25. We will never ask for money — all we want is blood!

Unite to save lives

Over 110,000 people from nearly 7,000 Red25 groups gave over 320,000 blood donations in 2016. Together, they saved up to nearly 1 million lives. That’s an incredible difference made by ordinary people from organisations just like yours.
