Why Corporate Volunteering Matters

by Luiza Braga

As you may have noticed, Corporate Social Responsibility is on the rise. Not only are companies looking for ways to give back and be socially responsible, but more often than not are employees and customers asking themselves: what are this company's values?
Here's where corporate volunteering comes in. When employees volunteer through their company, they build more than just CSR. Here are four good reasons for your company to adopt team volunteering:
  • Employees who often get caught up in busy lives do not have to choose between work and volunteering activities.
  • Volunteering as a company creates a culture of social responsibility for the organization and between employees.
  • Corporate volunteering promotes team bonding and strengthens employees' relationships.
  • When companies collaborate with charities, their brand becomes associated with values such as social consciousness and awareness.
Additionally, corporate volunteering is a way to keep employees motivated in fun environments where they can thrive as individuals rather than staff members.
