The Importance Of Encouraging Your Employees To Volunteer


If you are a workplace leader who supports a volunteer program at your business, you already know that by encouraging employees to give back to your community you are:
  • building teamwork
  • motivating employees
  • attracting new hires
In fact, job seekers much prefer companies that have a strong volunteer program. And, a growing number of businesses are rewarding employees who volunteer by giving them extra vacation time and other incentives.

Fortunately, throughout the U.S. there are hundreds of volunteer opportunities where employees can contribute individually, or where leaders can organize teams of employees to volunteer together on a routine and scheduled basis.

To find organizations in need of volunteers, go to Volunteer Match and type in your zip code.  You'll be presented a list of nearby volunteer opportunities.  Also, you can find opportunities on iPartcipate.
