Even in the Wheels section of the Star, where you would be focusing on cars and the auto industry, front and centre was an article about volunteering. A car dealership has taken it upon itself to encourage their employees to volunteer. Lead by their employer, which is key…they have developed a sense of community and partnered up with nonprofit organizations to make a difference.
There are many ways to build a volunteer program for employees but key to a successful employee engagement program is support from the top. Whether you are giving time off to volunteer, volunteering as a group or just encouraging the act of community engagement….leading by example, sharing stories and building a plan is important for long term success.
Small or large, find something that you can support and get everyone involved…what a wonderful teambuilding experience
