Employee Volunteer Engagements Drives Community Engagement

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
