Topic and Speaker : Best Practices in Corporate Engagement from VolunteerMatch Solutions: Motivating Volunteers in Tough Times with Linda Gornitsky, PhD, President, LBG Associates

Employee volunteer managers overestimate the value of recognition, according to the latest study from LBG Associates and LBG Research Institute. Where is the disconnect between managers and employees? What motivates employees to volunteer, if it is not recognition?

Join us for a complimentary webinar with Linda Gornitsky, PhD, from LBG Associates. Linda will present on her recent research, sharing a number of surprising findings, followed by an open discussion.
