This week, April 10 through April 16, 2016, is National Volunteer Week, and employees all across the country will be taking a break from their work to give back to their community alongside work colleagues. Volunteerism is increasingly becoming the core around which companies are building employee engagement strategies and programs, and serving as a catalyst for deeper partnerships with nonprofit organizations (Source: America’s Charities Snapshot 2015 report, The New Corporate DNA). 

What if your company does not have a volunteer program?  

It's never too late to get in the game.  If your organization does not have an employee volunteer program, National Volunteer Week is the perfect time to start putting your program together. Effective employee volunteer and skills giving programs are employee-driven, have specific business goals with clear strategies, and provide value to nonprofits and the community.
