Corporate volunteering is giving time, skills, abilities and knowledge of employees to a community/organization which needs their help.
Volunteer activities and support of volunteering have plenty of benefits for corporations. Some of them are active participation of employees, strengthening social ties, trust and understanding between an employee and an employer. Participating in volunteering will promote the company and its activities because on the one hand volunteers are helping the city and its organizations and on the other, a more pleasant environment is created plus working, interpersonal and intergenerational relationships are supported.
Volunteering brings a good feeling and energy, increases participation of people and motivation and creates a more positive and productive environment. If you want to show your employees that you really care about them, you can offer this meaningful and inspiring activity to them.
