Corporate Volunteering – Developing your Workforce and Strengthening the Team, new Blue Paper from 4imprint

(Manchester, UK) – ‘Corporate Volunteering – Developing your Workforce and Strengthening the Team’ is the latest Blue Paper from promotional items distributor 4imprint and is available now as a free download.

This Blue Paper looks at the business case for employee development through volunteering and explores the benefits for all concerned – the employee, the recipient not for profit and the employer.

“It goes without saying helping out a good cause with a paintbrush on a one-off basis is both rewarding and useful, yet this paper goes a step further. Here we look at how corporate volunteering programmes can utilise an individuals’ professional skills for a cause that matters to them,” says Cheryl Jackson-Leafield, Marketing Manager of 4imprint UK and Ireland. “Whilst the win for the non profit is obvious a well implemented volunteer programme will also deliver for the employer and simultaneously develop the professional and soft skills of the employee.”

The aim of this Blue Paper is to demonstrate how a volunteering programme run at a corporate level could positively impact on a business. It offers real life examples and ‘how to’ advice on establishing a programme and how to measure its impact within your existing appraisal system.
