Virtual Volunteerism Webinar with Nepris Helps Companies Engage Remote Employees —

April 9 webinar focuses on Virtual Volunteerism and Corporate Social Responsibility, and how companies can connect remote employees with students for career-focused conversations while working and learning from home



April 3, 2020PRLog — STEMconnector in partnership with Nepris is hosting a webinar on Thursday, April 9 at 3:00 p.m. EDT about how to engage employees in virtual volunteer opportunities. As the world shifts to being virtual and online all of the time in response to COVID-19, education, corporate, and intermediary stakeholders are scrambling to keep their employees and associates engaged, and motivated while working remotely. Nepris is a solution because it is a cloud-based platform to virtually connect industry professionals with the education community.

This webinar explains how professionals in corporate social responsibility, human resources, employee engagement, and volunteerism can use Nepris to connect employees with the education community regardless of location. Panelists include leaders from Nepris, STEMconnector, AT&T and K12, Inc.

These thought-leaders will discuss best practices, lessons learned, and what successful remote employee engagement looks like. For professionals working from home due to the COVID-19 crisis, and even into the future when they resume normal operations, virtual volunteerism helps keep employees engaged. Studies show that volunteerism also improves employee motivation, performance, and retention.

This webinar (…) is especially timely as schools across the country prepare for the possibility of remote learning until the 2020-21 school year. This will affect the education plan of millions and potentially will affect the workforce development plans of companies around the globe. The goal of this webinar is to provide real, scalable solutions to boost employee engagement while helping to keep students learning about career opportunities even as they shelter in place.

Through Nepris, employers can offer “Industry Chats” such as virtual tours, mock interviews, and online presentations on diverse topics, from cybersecurity to retail careers. And, they can reach hundreds of teachers, students, and families across the country in just one, 30-minute virtual session. Click to Tweet (
