Fidelity Investments has introduced a workplace philanthropy program that allows employers to integrate charitable giving into their current benefits program.

Called Fidelity Workplace Giving, the program offers employees a way to manage their philanthropic activities by giving through their workplace, Fidelity said in a release. The program also gives employers "a centralized administrative process and a clearer way to measure employee engagement and impact," Fidelity said.

"In addition, companies can more easily configure and automate company-matching gifts, which may encourage increased giving among employees," Fidelity said.
