“You deserve a break. Get out of the office. Go meet new people!”
No, we’re not telling you to slack on your work. We’re telling you how to grow your business!
Volunteering isn’t just another thing you have to add to your (already) busy day. It’s an opportunity to connect, inspire, learn, and grow. Allowing your employees to get out into the community educates them about local needs and resources, while providing a chance to promote your company mission and vision.
Why don’t people volunteer?
The most common reason people give for not volunteering is the lack of time. When time is built into the work day, employees are able to feel better about themselves and their jobs, knowing they are making an impact in their community.
