Skills-Based Volunteering in Action: Team Consulting

Offering upskilling opportunities is a priority for any company that values its employees’ continuous growth and success.

When Fidelity Investments sought a long-term skills-based volunteering program calibrated for the unique expertise of its Corporate Technology Group (CTG), it partnered with Common Impact to identify nonprofit projects that aligned with the team’s leadership and professional development goals. Common Impact matched CTG with Achievement First, a top public charter school network dedicated to providing equal educational opportunity for all. The team of seven Fidelity volunteers spent four months collaborating with Achievement First to develop a vendor selection framework for a new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to streamline the organization’s finance and HR functions, allowing staff to work smarter, not harder.

Read the case study to learn how the team consulting project delivered on Fidelity’s targeted professional development goals and generated a social return on investment of over $100,000 for Achievement First.
