Our Priorities

People and

We benefit from an engaged employee population motivated to join Blackbaud by our values and the work to support organizations and individuals driving social impact. Our culture is one that embraces remote-first flexibility, which offers our employees opportunities to develop, grow and lead regardless of location.

Focused on Employee Engagement

Our vision is to create a culture that thrives and delivers an engaged, inclusive employee experience to all. To do this, we feel it is critical to request feedback and hear from our employees.

How we’re doing:

  • 90% of employees say the fact that Blackbaud operates in a socially responsible manner is important to them
  • 90% of employees participated in our annual Employee Engagement Survey
  • Monthly Q&As with senior leaders

Investing in Our Employees’ Development

We value the skills, depth of knowledge, and individuality that each employee brings to help our customers build a better world. We strive for continual learning and development, pathways for internal mobility, and training.

How we’re doing:

  • 100% of employees receive regular performance reviews and evaluations
  • 49% of our workforce are women
  • 26% of tech roles are filled by underrepresented minorities

Caring for Employee Well-Being

We care about our people as individuals. We subscribe to a total rewards philosophy with a focus on overall well-being and pay-for-performance. We place significant importance on providing well-being benefits that support the emotional, social, intellectual, physical, and financial well-being of employees and their families to enable them to thrive as they help our customers drive impact.

How we’re doing:

  • Added new benefits for gender affirmation and infertility
  • Addition of ‘loss of child during pregnancy’ to bereavement policy

Giving Back

Giving back is part of our DNA. Blackbaud employees engage in philanthropy through an array of programs, including matching gifts, grant committees, and skills-based volunteerism.

How we’re doing:

  • 70% of employees volunteered in 2022
  • 145 grants given to charities
  • 100 team volunteer events

Committed to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies throughout the company by empowering our employees to be their authentic selves, fostering a sense of belonging and community across our employees, customers, partners, and others in the social impact community.

How we’re doing:

  • 13 company supported affinity groups
  • 50% of the company’s Board of Directors are female or minority

At Blackbaud, engaged employees are critically important. We celebrate wins, we fail fast, and we learn every day, which is key in creating a thriving environment where everyone is welcomed, heard, and valued.
