HAPPIER, MORE PRODUCTIVE STAFF
Increasingly, employers are being asked by staff to show that they have a social conscience and responsibility. When employers help staff find roles volunteering on charity boards, it has been shown to increase job satisfaction and build staff skills, and it also helps the company itself build its reputation and show itself as an ethical employer.
A VITAL TOOL FOR RECRUITMENT, RETENTION AND REPUTATION
One way to make your company stand out to the brightest prospects in the labour market is to show that you care - for staff, and for the wider world. Helping staff volunteer their time for charity is one of the best ways to do that.
But the most able staff shouldn’t be spending their time doing simple tasks. They should be using their skills – and acquiring new ones. That’s where volunteering on a charity board comes in. It’s a way for them to gain leadership experience, make a difference, and build new networks, making them more valuable employees, and building a better future, all at the same time.
