Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, meet new people, and learn new skills. And, it can also help your workplace function better. Here’s how:
Volunteering can help employees feel more connected to their workplace. When employees feel like they are part of something larger than themselves, they are more likely to be engaged in their work.
Volunteering can also help employees build new skills. If your workplace is looking for a way to train employees in new skills, volunteering is a great way to do it. For example, if your workplace is looking to train employees in leadership skills, have them volunteer as leaders for a charity event.
Volunteering can also help your local community by bolstering capacity, so it's really a win-win!
And if you already have a corporate social responsibility program in place, it should be really easy to highlight your employer brand's purpose-driven culture.
