April is national volunteer month, and what greater time than now to work on a corporate volunteer program. As a leader among staffing agencies in Murfreesboro, TN, we understand the value of a helping hand. Here are a few reasons why you should consider offering paid time off to engage your employees in volunteer work.
Show Your Appreciation
Nobody works hard for a manager they feel doesn’t appreciate them. While you may think that it’s the salary and their employment that motivates team members at the end of the day, it’s actually more likely the people they work for and with who drive employees to do their best work. Showing your investment in their community and in their time through a paid corporate volunteer program shows that you appreciate the value they bring to the company and to their community as well.
Team Bonding Opportunities
Similar to a company party, a company volunteer event is another great way to bring the team together and inspire some valuable bonding time. Volunteer events can be anything from cleaning up a roadside or donating to a worthy local cause. This kind of act really does bring people together and makes them feel like the company really cares about their community and how they can help make the world a better place through their work.
Show Up for Your Community
By investing your business dollars and many power directly into supporting your community, you are able to show the people who support your business that you value them as much as their business. By showing up for your community through volunteer days, paid leave for employees to spend time in the community in meaningful ways, and encouraging staff to give back when and where they can, you are showing leadership within your community and care for that responsibility. Communities support businesses which show respect and responsibility for the places they call home. Make sure you are showing that you care through great programs such as these.
Invest in More than Financial Contribution
Many businesses consider the holiday season a great opportunity to support community programs and organizations financially. But what about the other 11 months of the year? When you invest in a volunteer program you show you’re willing and able to put your money where your mouth is. Or in fact, your muscle where your community needs it. The boost you get from your team’s moral and camaraderie are great. But you know the people and places who need it most appreciate seeing you out in the field . This can even shed light on challenges and business opportunities that you can help address through your business. So never shy away from the opportunity to get your (and your team’s) hands dirty.
