(3BL Media/Justmeans) - It's hard to escape the corporate bubble, which is why some companies are looking outside of their business models to reconnect with what’s going on around them. A number of companies are consciously enabling their employees to get out more, stepping outside to transform their businesses and reconnect to society. Many feel the corporate world is too detached from the world around it.

Now, around the world, some companies are encouraging their staffs to break out of their meeting rooms in order to make a difference. Outerwall Inc. (Nasdaq: OUTR), a leader in automated retail, has taken its corporate giving to another level, furthering its collaboration with the not-for-profits that it has given grants to by creating meaningful volunteer opportunities for its own company employees. This is part of the company’s mission to engage one-third of its workforce in volunteering by 2015. It believes by playing an active role in the communities where its employees live and work, it is also empowering the organisations that are driving positive change.
