How to Make Volunteering Work for All Your Employees

Sam likes to volunteer with his hands. It gives his mind a break from his mentally demanding job. Jasmine prefers to use her specialized coding skills to volunteer. Otherwise, she feels her time volunteering is misspent. And Lena wants an opportunity to reconnect with colleagues she doesn’t see every day, and a chance to chat with the new faces around the office.

No two employee volunteers are the same. And that’s a good thing! Different people get excited about different things. But as a corporate volunteer program manager, pleasing everyone may seem like a daunting task.

But we want to fill you in on a little-known fact: engaging employees through unique volunteer opportunities is easier than you might think!

To explore this topic, we teamed up with our partners at Bright Funds for a free webinar on June 13, 2017 to discuss how to:

  • Take stock of your employees’ unique volunteer preferences
  • Design a robust corporate volunteer program that makes everyone happy
  • Turn those plans into action with the help of engaged employees

Did you miss the webinar? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Watch the recording and start making volunteering work for all your employees today.

    Believe it or not my former employer is threatening to sue me to make me stop volunteering! They say my un-paid volunteer work teaching urban kids to code and helping them get IT jobs violates my non-compete and sent me a cease and desist letter. When I nicely asked how my volunteer community service violated anything, they just followed up with even stronger letter threatening to make me repay my severance, and make me pay for the cost to enjoin me from further work for the non-profit if I even asked them again what they objected to. They demand that I agree to stop in writing. Have you ever heard of anything like this?

    Sorry to hear this, I have not heard of this before. In my experience, companies tend to encourage this type of skilled volunteering.
