We're excited to announce the release of our newest Good Card case study! Datalogix, a company that provides marketing infrastructure for the data driven era by connecting digital advertising to offline sales, uses Network for Good's, Good Card® to incentivize employee referrals.
As part of this referral program, Datalogix’s human resources team sought to create a rewards program that reflected its culture of giving. The addition of the referral program, enables employees to receive a $1,000 Good Cardwhen a referral joins the Datalogix team.
Key case study findings include:
→ Employees are motivated to shape the Datalogix work culture.
The addition of the Good Card to the existing referral program gives employees great incentive to refer top talent. This allows employees to not only contribute to the Datalogix team and culture, but to their community as well.
→ Employees contribute to charities of all shapes and sizes.
With 1.4 million charities to choose from, it’s not just large nonprofits that receive donations—local nonprofits and niche causes also receive much-needed support. Employees are excited to receive Good Cards and spend the funds to support their favorite cause.
If you're interested in learning how to use these charity cards to boost your employee engagement portfolio, email us!

We’re pleased to share our newest guide sponsored by Quantum Workplace, Engaging Millennial Employees: Recruit and Retain Top Talent with Cause. Here’s an excerpt:
Generation Y has been imbued with a sense of responsibility. Millennials feel responsible for themselves, their neighbors (both virtual and physical), their communities, and their planet. They grew up learning the importance of recycling and using less water, and that their actions directly affect their communities. In return, they believe that companies—their employers—have a responsibility to them, their society, and the world.
Although they acknowledge the bottom line, they also believe that companies need to give back some of what they’ve earned to contribute to the greater good. They see smart ways for companies to do this, too, such as transparency in reporting, sustainable business practices, and using company products and services for good. According to Jay Gilbert in the Ivey Business Journal, the single biggest threat to Millennial employee retention is a company’s reputation. Why is this so important?
