ENGAGING WITH COMPANIES

Employer supported volunteering is becoming increasingly popular in Ireland. More and more employers are offering staff a ‘volunteering day’, whereby employees can work with a community group or charity for a day without taking annual leave. A team of employee volunteers can often tackle big or daunting once off projects – tasks that organisations may typically struggle with due to a lack of staff / volunteers or funding for materials to realise the project.

Is your charity or community group interested in involving volunteers from a company? Find out more about Volunteer Ireland’s employee volunteering service that matches teams of company employees with not-for-profit groups for unique and meaningful community volunteer days, through our Team Impact Day service.
