Prospects, the education, employment, training and care company, has supported #givingtuesday ever since it came to the UK in 2014.

Prospects colleagues are always keen to support good causes and help those in need, indeed helping people improve their lives is at the heart of what we do as business. Already this year Prospects colleagues have raised almost £12,000 for various charities!

Usually #givingtuesday is an opportunity for colleagues to join together and support good causes through fundraising. However, this year Prospects is turning #givingtuesday on its head. Instead of asking colleagues to support a cause, Prospects will show its support for colleagues’ fundraising and volunteering efforts through an awards programme.

Colleagues can nominate themselves and each other in one (or more) of four categories. Prospects will donate £100 to the charity of each winner’s choosing. On #givingtuesday award winners will be announced in real time on Prospects internal social media site, Yammer, and its external social media channels too.
