If you are looking for a unique development opportunity to offer your employees, please consider supporting United Way Services of Geauga County’s Loaned Executive program. The Loaned Executive Program is critical to United Way’s continued success in meeting our community’s growing needs. Each year, businesses such as yours — dedicated to making a difference in our community — commit to lending an employee or providing sponsorship funds for the campaign period from August 11 through December 12.
The term ‘Loaned Executive’ refers to a person who is either loaned by an organization or hired by United Way using sponsorship donors to work as a fundraiser and community spokesperson for United Way’s annual campaign.
Loaned Executives are the link between United Way’s campaign leadership and the Geauga businesses who help plan and implement successful employee campaigns. United Way offers two ways for employers to support the Loaned Executive process:
- lend United Way an employee’s time
- sponsor the cost of hiring a temporary executive by United Way
By investing in your employees, you are investing in your company…long term.
The Loaned Executive position is an opportunity for your employee to grow professionally and personally. Your employee will have the opportunity to develop and hone skills in sales, customer service, project management, public speaking, and team building. He or she will also gain valuable community knowledge and contacts, be a part of a positive team environment, and play a leadership role in the community.
Employees will appreciate the opportunity to develop their talents and show their company pride throughout the community. By investing in your community, you are helping improve lives in Geauga County.
The Loaned Executive class begins on Monday, August 11, 2014. In order to recruit the appropriate complement of Loaned Executives, it is essential that we confirm sponsorship and employee Loaned Executive commitments by Friday, July 18, 2014.
