AVM leaning & development Day: Volunteer reward and recognition
Friday 30th September 2016
Registration will open at 10:00 with presentations beginning at 10:30. The day will close at 16:30.
For many volunteering is its own reward but as Volunteer Managers we all know the importance of rewarding and recognising volunteers for giving their time, energy and creativity to our organisations. This can be deceptively difficult to do effectively, from limited resources to legal pitfalls there are many obvious and not so obvious challenges to overcome when considering your own reward and recognition programme.
Join us for our latest learning & development day where we explore reward and recognition good practice, challenges and triumphs with talks including:
Macmillan’s Journey of rewarding and recognising volunteers
Johnny Keating – Volunteering Journey Programme Manager & Stephanie Davenport - Volunteer Engagement Manager – Macmillan Cancer Support
Macmillan have reviewed and repurposed a lot of their reward and recognition mechanisms, and have introduced some new initiatives to ensure volunteers feel valued. As we all know, every person is different, and would like to feel valued in different ways, therefore offering a suite of reward and recognition tools has ensured every volunteer has a great experience with Macmillan.
Maintaining Engagement Beyond Event Day
Jennifer Fash – Volunteer Manager – London Marathon Events
Drawing on her previous experience and work at other organisations Jennifer Fash will be sharing her plans for creating a comprehensive reward and recognition programme at London Marathon Events, where their most well-known event the London Marathon attracts in the region of 6000 volunteers the biggest challenge is maintaining engagement beyond event day. Jennifer will share with us how she hopes her model will help change this.
We will also hear from Geraldine McCarthy at Age UK Camden and her experience of making volunteers feel valued by creating meaningful rewards within a smaller organisation, and looking at ways in which recognition can be part of the culture from the beginning of a volunteer experience with ‘special’ activities acting as highlights and focus.
Please note: Light refreshments will be provided throughout the day but lunch will not be, instead delegates are encouraged to bring their own or to purchase it from food vendors close to the venue.
