Employee Volunteering – How corporates fit in
There are many internal and external benefits for a company that encourages it’s employees to volunteer.
Employee volunteering helps increase staff morale, boost performance and improve retention rates. Employees who volunteer not only get a chance to develop personal skills but also get an opportunity to contribute to an issue that they really care about. And they feel proud of working for a company that supports society and community.
Businesses where employees are encouraged to volunteer go on to build a positive image in the community as well as with their clients and associates. Employee volunteers improve the company’s relationship with its stakeholders, with the local community in which it operates, and/or with the wider community This goes onto to show that the company believes in contributing towards the society.
In all, corporate volunteering is a winning proposition for both the employer and the employee.
Services offered by iVolunteer:
Orientation- Orienting the interested volunteers to the development sector and about the organisation before placing them.
Volunteering Opportunity Verification - Verifying the volunteering opportunities arrived upon by an organisation for the placement of volunteers.
Volunteer Management Systems - Helping to set-up management systems to make the best use of volunteers while making their participation a satisfying experience for them.
Sourcing Volunteers - Matching volunteers with available opportunities and suitable placements.
Non-profit Boards - Help in placing mid-to senior-level executives in non-profit trusteeship. Serving on a non-profit board of directors is an excellent way for your employees to develop leadership skills, build on their professional network and contribute their effort and expertise to the non-profit organizations.
Training and Orientation - Help in orienting prospective volunteers to the development sector and related work of the organisations.
If you want something more from the act of Volunteering…. come and join us in our challenge “If you mean it, Do it.”. We think it's worth it.
