Importance of Volunteering

79% OF AMERICANS PREFER TO WORK FOR SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE COMPANIES.

 

How do they define “socially responsible”? Many ways, but having an active volunteer program is one of them. Some basic benefits of such a program are: improved employee engagement, strong recruitment of younger employees, improved corporate visibility, employee development, encouraging teamwork, improved communication, building brand awareness, improved employee retention.

86% OF WORKERS WHO IDENTIFY AS MILLENNIALS SAY THEY WOULD CONSIDER LEAVING THEIR COMPANY IF THEIR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY NO LONGER MET THEIR EXPECTATIONS.

 

Considering the average cost of replacing a worker is 150% of their salary, and the average cost of setting up a coordinated volunteer effort is $4,000 annually, the benefit to the bottom line is clear. Now, how do you go about setting up a program?

Step one: brainstorm what local charities align with your vision and company culture

Step two: contact said charity and ask about their corporate volunteerism program (they probably have one)

Step three: implement.
