Join the Leadership Council
The Water For People Leadership Council was formed to recognize and celebrate the legacy of the water, wastewater, and engineering sectors in pursuing our shared vision — a world where every family has access to safe, clean water and sanitation services.
Benefits of Joining the Leadership Council
In addition to the good they are doing in the world, members of the Leadership Council enjoy the benefits of aligning their companies to an impactful organization with a universal cause. Through heightened employee engagement, stronger corporate social responsibility programs, and opportunities for executive-level networking with peers within the sector, members gain as much as they give (or more!).
Employees want to work for companies that care
79% of people prefer to work for a socially responsible company and 79% of employees think it’s important that their companies match their charitable giving.
A well-designed corporate social responsibility program can increase employee engagement up to 7.5%, increase employee productivity by 13%, reduce employee turnover by 50%, and increase revenue by 20%.
