How to Engage Employer-Supported Volunteers @ Online
Jun 22 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Of the 12.7 million Canadians who volunteer, over 1/3 are supported to do so through their employer.

For companies, employer-supported volunteering (ESV) is an increasingly important part of their community investment mix and helps with engaging and motivating employees, attracting talent, increasing visibility in the community and improving relationships with clients, customers and other stakeholders. For community organizations, it can be an opportunity for growing labour and skilled resources while engaging new audiences in their mission.

Is your organization ready to manage requests for corporate volunteering opportunities?

What you’ll learn:

  • Trends, best-practices and considerations in employer-supported volunteering.
  • Guidelines for building your volunteering program to incorporate employee volunteers.

This webinar is hosted by Charity Village.
