Mankato, MN -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/23/2015 -- Manufacturers' Pain Points newsletter reported manufacturing high tech companies are capturing employee engagement via corporate citizenship. Profiling Intuit, makers of Quicken, the company's "We Care and Give Back Program" includes "Dollars for Doers," donation matching, and team grants. The motivation behind this program was to better engage the staff. Most companies set a Dollars for Doers amount of about $15-20 per hour starting at 10 hours, sometimes starting as high as 50 hours! Intuit got rid of the 10-hour threshold and said, "Every hour you volunteer deserves a match."
