Join us to discuss how employee volunteering can add to your CSR programme
If your company has a successful fundraising program in place, have you considered what the next move for your community investment strategy might be? Employee volunteering is a powerful way for businesses to contribute to the local community, providing charities with the manpower they need to keep services running, whilst giving employees a chance to step out of their comfort zone and use their skills to make a direct impact on a cause they believe in. The icing on the cake? – corporate volunteering is a great way to drive up employee engagement too.
But how to decide which charities would benefit most from the skills of your colleagues? And what is the best way to inspire and empower staff to get out of the office and volunteer?
On Thursday 30 March DWF Law and Benefacto warmly invite you for a brainstorm over breakfast, where we’ll pick the minds of our debating panel on employee volunteering and how to get the best out of it.
We’d be delighted if you come and join us to share your thoughts and experience!
DWF's commitment to innovation and excellence goes far beyond their business and legal work and means standing up for the things they believe in. Their responsible way of working builds long-lasting, sustainable relationships, helping young people to achieve more in education, vulnerable people to find work, the voluntary and community sectors to become more effective and helping to protect and improve the environment as well as growing enterprise across the UK.
Benefacto is a social enterprise on a mission to engage more professional people in meaningful volunteering. Done right, Employee Volunteering strengthens the over-stretched charity sector and enhances the service received by those in need. It develops the skills of all involved, creates a cross pollination of ideas between different groups in our society and builds a greater understanding of how to support others in overcoming the challenges they face.
