employee volunteers


The organizations that are part of Highmark Health proudly support a decades-long tradition of employees volunteering. In addition to participating in the annual United Way Day of Caring, Highmark Health has multiple enterprise-wide initiatives to empower employee volunteers:

  • Our Volunteer Day Off gives employees an extra paid day off for volunteering during normal work hours.
  • YourCause, an online system, sorts volunteer opportunities by location, causes, and skills; tracks volunteer hours; and provides up-to-date project information for both internal and external opportunities.

RAVE (Recognition Award for Volunteer Engagement)

This newly created program was integrated within the YourCause platform. The recognition award is based upon the number of volunteer hours that an employee records in the platform. Employees can redeem a Cause Card, which is a monetary donation for the charity of their choice. A total of 163 donations were issued for volunteer service in 2021, benefitting 119 charities with $30,650 in donations.
