"Getting on Board is an excellent initiative, and the Institute of Directors fully supports its objectives. Board-level volunteering is a cost-effective way of developing leadership skills, especially of middle and senior managers, the directors of the future. Increasingly prospective employees want to work for employers that put something back into their communities, and companies that encourage board level volunteering are more likely to become 'employers of choice'. It is also a simple way for companies to meet their corporate responsibility goals."
