In this episode of Transform Your Workplace, Eli Blackman, the Co-Founder and CEO of Field Day, discusses his career journey and the importance of community engagement in the workplace. He shares how his experience at Elemental, a small startup later acquired by Amazon, inspired him to start Field Day, a program that connects employees with volunteering opportunities at local nonprofits. Give this episode a listen, and learn how volunteering can have a positive impact on your team’s morale, job satisfaction, and company culture.



  • Creating a culture of giving back to local nonprofits boosts employee morale, job satisfaction, and retention.

  • Recognizing the value of this outlet for employees, Eli Blackman co-founded Field Day, aiming to fill the gap in the market for tools that empower companies and employees to participate in volunteer activities together.

  • Volunteering shouldn’t be forced; instead, once employees participate of their own accord, they make connections that inspire and spur them to continue.

  • Leaders must address the challenge of relationship-building among their hybrid workforce, and one way to do so is through volunteering initiatives.

  • 80% of employees who participate in volunteer events see a decrease in stress and report an improvement in mental health.

  • Companies that integrate corporate social responsibility into their culture see a 50% decrease in turnover.
