Why should employees volunteer?

Employee volunteering is a flexible and ethical way for community-minded companies to exercise their corporate social responsibility. It offers businesses a viable alternative to donations or sponsorship. Research shows that employee volunteering assists with staff attraction and retention, enhances working relationships, and builds a company’s brand and reputation.
