Corporate Volunteering

Doing good is good for business

There are many benefits to involving your staff in employee volunteering which has been well researched and documented. A study by the Macquarie Graduate School of Management (2013) found that employees who participated in corporate volunteering were more engaged with their organisation than non-volunteers and scored significantly higher on most measures of job satisfaction.

Benefits to the company:

  • Increased employee retention and loyalty
  • Increased employee engagement
  • Produce positive business and social outcomes
  • Improved community perception and related marketing opportunities
  • Demonstrated corporate citizenship activities
  • Positive effect on productivity


Benefits to the employees include:

  • Increase in employee knowledge, skills and abilities
  • Developing communication and leadership skills
  • Improved morale and motivation
  • Greater job satisfaction
  • Increased personal and professional growth
  • Sense of personal achievement
