Leadership is increasingly concerned with attracting and retaining talent and research shows that a key decision factor for many of the millennial job seekers is the degree to which the organisation gives back to community. Thus having an effective employee/corporate volunteering program is paramount for success in contemporary organisations.
Considering that leaders drive organisational culture and make decisions about what to consider when developing or improving a volunteering program, this topic explores the leadership role in how to assess the degree to which an organisation is ‘employee volunteer friendly’ and how to create a volunteer friendly workplace for employees/corporate volunteers.
This panel of speakers from across the corporate, non for profit, and university sectors will delve into how an organisational culture of volunteering is inspired, lived and evidenced. It will highlight that the implementation of a vibrant, effective volunteering program requires more than just resources or a token policy.
