Do you have a to-do list as long as your arm or a wish list of things you would like to do at your organisation, if only you had the time? Maybe you have a garden to be cleared or indoor spaces that are a bit shabby. Perhaps you have a business challenge or need advice from someone with professional expertise. If so, employee volunteers may be able to help!
If you’d like to chat about how employee volunteers might support your community group or organisation email Terri O’Brien at [email protected].
Looking for resources to help you benefit from employee volunteering?
If so, check out our Resource Library! Here you’ll find everything you need including ideas to engage volunteers, How to Guides, checklists that take you through planning a team activity, a sample project risk assessment, developing a task list for your activity and even painting guidelines for that one-off community painting project.
Wondering how companies are supporting other organisations like yours today?
