...This year, insurance company Highmark Health subscribed to VolunteerMatch so its employees could more easily find projects that need their help and that fit their personal interests. VolunteerMatch also tracks service hours.

Since the site opened to workers in February, 2,300 of Highmark Health’s 40,000 employees have registered and logged 7,800 volunteer hours, said Judy Windom, who manages the company’s VolunteerMatch platform.

“Our employees are our company’s greatest asset. They not only give 100 percent to their jobs, but they also go above and beyond by supporting community programs,” said Evan Frazier, senior vice president of community affairs at Highmark Health. “Our spirit of employee volunteerism is alive and contagious, with thousands of hours committed to programs each year that assist nonprofit organizations in the communities where we do business.”
