More Than CV Points: The Benefits of Employee Volunteering for Business and Individuals

In a difficult economic climate, there has never been a better time to explore the potential of employee volunteering schemes to furnish the UK workforce with both soft and hardskills.

Although employee volunteering schemes have become increasingly widespread in recent years, employers often fail to differentiate between different kinds of volunteering schemes, conflating those that offer one day team-building exercises with those that involve accredited training and longer term career development. The result is that both employers and employees often fail to see the full potential benefits that workplace volunteering can bring.

In this edited collection, a group of expert authors from across the private and charitable sectors offer their thoughts on the role of government in this agenda, and the actions needed from individual employers.
