With the New Year, it’s time to start planning your volunteer events, including companywide volunteer days and weeks of service. Looking forward, April is typically a hands on-month for corporate volunteer programs—National Volunteer Week (April 18-24, 2021) and Earth Day (April 22, 2021). Research shows the clear connection between volunteering and employee engagement, and your preparation now will provide future opportunities to get employees connected to environmental and social programs.
How are you planning for employee volunteering in 2021? Bring your lessons learned in 2020 about virtual or hybrid programming and share with your peers. Whether you are finishing your plans or just getting started, this meetup will be a chance to talk about engaging employees in your corporate citizenship efforts.
