When Engaging Employees, Vivint Taps ‘The Power of One’ (Halo Winner)

We’re back with another special edition of Cause Talk Radio in which we feature a deep dive conversation w/ one of this year’s Halo Award winners.

This episode features the Gold winner for the Group Volunteerism category, an effort called The Power of One from Vivint Smart Home.

Megan is joined by Holly Mero Bench, Director of Vivint Gives Back. They dig into why Vivint focuses on helping families with children who have autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities after recognizing the profound impact of smart home technology for these families.

Holly and Megan discuss the many moving pieces that Vivint activates when it comes to engaging their employees, from international service trips in which employees pay part of their way to providing holiday gifts for families in need. We talk about the role of employee choice in engagement efforts as well as the lessons Holly has learned along the way and the advice she’d give to others who are working to ramp up an employee volunteerism program.
