Engaging with the community is increasingly high on the agenda of many businesses of whatever size for lots of reasons. Giving employees the time to volunteer for local causes is one way for businesses to support the community. Volunteering isn’t just about ‘giving something back’. It is widely accepted that volunteering develops personal and professional skills that are brought back to the workplace.
