For Partners and Potential Partners

Is Digital Boost looking for new partners?

Yes! We’re always open to working with new partners and love working with other organisations who want to support small businesses and charities to learn and grow.

How does Digital Boost work with partners?

We work with partners in three main ways:

1. Volunteering: Partners refer their employees and / or members of their community to volunteer with us. This a great way to drive employee engagement, build leadership skills, and give back to your community. Our partnership programme offers a full programme of dedicated support and detailed, real-time insights to help you track your impact.

2. Referring customers or members of your community for free mentoring and learning: We work with partners to spread the word to small businesses and charities about our free service. Deep insights help our partners track the outcomes.

3. Contributions / in kind donations: As part of a charity, we welcome support from partners in the form of in-kind donations of services or other financial support.

How can we help spread the word to businesses about the service?

We would be grateful for your support in promoting Digital Boost.

Here are some ideas:

Website & Marketing Materials: Please include Digital Boost on your website and in any small business support materials you have.

Digital Ads: We’ve created a series of digital ads you can use to promote the service: Partner's Corner

Social Media: Follow us on social media for details of our workshops, new offerings and success stories. We would appreciate it if you can share our stories! Events - We’d love to participate in events for your team and / or local businesses. Please keep us in mind!

I work for one of your partners. Can I volunteer?

If you work for one of our partners, you can sign up to be part of our partner volunteer program through your employer’s dedicated page on Digital Boost, which you can find here: Digital Boost Partners  

Please use your employer email address and include your company name when you register. This will help us understand how many employees from your company have volunteered through Digital Boost, and help our partner get insights into their employee activity on the platform. Volunteers can register using their personal email if they do not wish to be part of a partner program.

Does Digital Boost provide any volunteer or mentee information to Partners? If so, how does Digital Boost use that information?

Digital Boost provides selected partners with aggregated, anonymous information about the number and profile of people signed up, location, number of hours, and most frequently used learning topics. This information is used for aggregate reporting purposes by the government and partners. No personally identifiable information is shared until express consent is given. For volunteers who registered via our partners, we may share specific information for their internal tracking purposes - only if you agreed at sign up.

How do I unlink my Digital Boost account from a partner program?

If you joined via your employer and no longer work there, or do not wish to be linked to them any longer, please update your account by unlinking yourself from the partner program. You can do that in your account preferences.

My employer uses Benevity. Does Digital Boost participate?

Benevity is a charity scheme that collects corporate donations on behalf of charities, and distributes these donations accordingly. Some partners use Benevity to track their employee volunteering, so they can make a matching donation. We would be grateful if you give to Digital Boost through your employer’s Benevity Programme. After you complete a mentoring call, log your volunteering hours, either on Benevity, or through your employer’s volunteering capture system.

Can I use my Volunteer Time Off (VTO) for this?

Speak to your employer, and if their partnership with Digital Boost qualifies for VTO programs.
