Many employers capitalize on the United Way campaign to pull their employees together, to enhance employee relations, to work towards a common goal and to create a feeling of supporting their community as an organization.

Most employers participate in the payroll deduction program, which allows employees to deduct a regular amount from each paycheque to fulfill their annual pledge to United Way. Employees fill out their pledge form during the annual Campaign in the fall. One copy goes to their human resources or payroll department, while another copy goes to United Way. Payments usually begin the following January. One of the unique features of United Way, Training and support.
Training is provided to your employee volunteer through individual meetings with United Way campaign staff. In some cases, a Sponsored Employee will be assigned to your workplace to guide and assist with new ideas to ensure that your campaign is a successful one. All major campaign materials will be supplied to your coordinator.
