At Gryphon Place, we know that as mission-driven organizations, you continue to face challenges of doing more with less. This is why it is important for you to invest and excel in volunteer engagement practices that lead to better achieving your mission.
Organizations that excel at leveraging the skills and talents of volunteers in their core operations are known as “Service Enterprises”. These organizations are proven to be more adaptable, sustainable and capable of scaling their impact in comparison to peer organizations.
In fact, research conducted by the TCC Group demonstrates that organizations that leverage volunteers are equally as effective as their counterparts without volunteers, yet their average annual budgets are almost half. When an organization leverages the time and talents of volunteers at all levels of the organization, they are significantly more adaptable, sustainable and better resourced to do their work, and therefore able to sustainably go to scale.
Gryphon Place is excited to be partnering with Points of Light, the largest organization in the world dedicated to volunteer service, to offer you access to the Service Enterprise Initiative (SEI). This holistic change management approach helps organizations transform the way they engage human talent. By achieving this level of excellence and certification, you will be uniquely positioned to leverage the time and skills of volunteers, to expand program operations and revenues, realize higher programmatic impact, generate more operational efficiencies and better achieve your mission.
Service Enterprise is administered in a 7-step process.
