Three Chicagoland organizations have joined the ten previously certified organizations in Illinois as Service Enterprise Certified. Chicago organizations Chicago Cares and Second Sense joined St. Peter Lutheran Church and School of Arlington Heights in completing the year-long certification process early January.
Service Enterprise candidate organizations undergo a diagnostic that indicates areas for improvement in volunteer engagement and resourcing, then receive extensive training, coaching, and finally certification. Service Enterprise gets to the heart of organizational capacity by measuring volunteer engagement practices in 10 key areas as identified through research performed by Deloitte and the Service Enterprise researchers. TCC Group found that “Service Enterprises not only lead and manage better, they are significantly more adaptable, sustainable and capable of going to scale.”
Congratulations to the new Service Enterprises! They will truly lead by example.
