June 13, 2011 SHRM Poll: Relief Efforts for Victims of the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
Relief Efforts for Victims of Japan Earthquake and Tsunami ©SHRM 2011 Key Findings 2 Are organizations providing relief efforts? Nearly one-third (31%) of organization said they are currently providing or planning to provide assistance with relief efforts to aid victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. What type of relief efforts are organizations offering? Encouraging employees to donate individually (i.e., on their own) without company involvement (69%) was the most commonly reported type of assistance. More than one-half (54%) of organizations are providing information on various agencies employees can donate to and nearly one-half (46%) are matching employee contribution (e.g., dollar-for-dollar match) via company-organized donation programs. Are organizations providing the same amount of assistance for Japan compared with the Haiti earthquake in 2010? More than one-half of the organizations (52%) in the 2010 survey about Haiti earthquake relief efforts indicated that they were providing assistance to the victims in the 2010 Haiti earthquake. This is double the percentage of organizations (24%) that reported providing relief efforts for the victims of the Japan earthquake and tsunami. Among organizations participating in relief efforts, there are several similarities in the types of assistance offered to Japan and Haiti: 1) The majority of organizations donated via company funds only, without matching employee contributions (69% for Japan and 71% for Haiti); 2) organizations provided information on various agencies that employees could donate to in support of relief efforts (54% for Japan compared with 62% for Haiti); and 3) an equal percentage of organizations matched employee contributions (e.g., dollar-for-dollar match) via company-organized donation program for both Haiti and Japan disasters (46% each).
