Why should your company volunteer?


Seven-in-10 (70%) Americans (and 80% of millennials) believe companies have an obligation to take actions to improve issues
that may not be relevant to everyday business operations.*

Now, more than ever, today’s workforce expects employers to be contributing to the community. Corporate Social Responsibility is a natural evolution of an organization’s ethical values into a promise of how it will interact with and be responsible to the planet and people on it.

Many of today’s most profitable businesses have integrated CSR into their corporate visions and have seen the benefits for their employees, community, and bottom line. Corporate volunteerism is an easy and effective way to put your CSR plans into action.
