Companies reap numerous benefits from employee volunteerism efforts, including:

- Leveraging grant dollars

Directing both a company’s contributions dollars and its employees’ time and talent to the same causes can sometimes produce results far greater than either could do on their own.

- A recruiting edge

Many companies find that a solid volunteerism program can be an important employee recruitment and retention tool.

- A stable commitment

Volunteerism can help a company increase its commitment to the community, even in lean economic times, when it might not be able to increase its charitable grant dollars.

- Teamwork

Company-sponsored volunteer activities can foster team spirit and allow people to get to know their colleagues outside the workplace.

- Leadership

Volunteer opportunities encourage employees to take the lead.

- New skills

Volunteering challenges employees to learn new skills that may help them in their careers.
