Volunteer Partnerships with Businesses
Corporate Projects & Partnerships – Volunteers@Work The Helpline Center works directly with businesses to provide corporate volunteer activities for employee groups. We have set up large scale volunteer projects such as Citi’s Paint the Prairie Project and small scale projects where employee groups volunteer for a few hours. We can partner with the businesses and organize all of the details or provide referrals to nonprofits in need of assistance. Simply dial 2-1-1 and we will point you in the right direction.
Research shows that companies who encourage employee volunteerism get more than they give.
In fact, employee volunteerism can raise staff morale, improve office relationships, increase productivity and lead to greater job satisfaction. Studies show that companies with volunteer programs have higher staff retention rates and are more attractive to people seeking employment. Employee volunteerism also serves as an opportunity for staff to learn new skills and develop leadership qualities. In fact, 91 percent of Fortune 500 company human resource managers felt volunteerism built necessary skills among their employees. Help your community. Help your business. Help your employees.
