Increase Employee Engagement with Corporate International Service Learning


Engagement is defined as an employee's positive or negative emotional attachment to a job, to colleagues and to an organization. Being fully engaged at work profoundly influences an employee's willingness to learn and perform - and has real impact on a company's bottom line. According to Gallup’s State of the American Workforce “Engaged employees make it a point to show up to work and do more work” (, 2016) and the report shows that highly engaged business units benefit from: 

  • 41% reduction in absenteeism
  • 17% increase in productivity
  • Engaged workers that are more likely to stay with their employer
  • 10% increase in customer metrics
  • 20% increase in sales

 With data like this, it is no surprise that companies are interested in finding ways to increase employee engagement, and Corporate International Service Learning (CISL) programmes provide a powerful way of doing this, as research from our 2017 CISL Impact Benchmark Study shows.
