If your company has put corporate social responsibility (CSR) at the heart of what it does, then employer-supported volunteering can be a particularly rich and rewarding part of the CSR mix.
Volunteering opportunities in the physical activity and sport sector offer some really fantastic benefits. From strengthening communities by bringing people together and reducing anti-social behaviour, to supporting projects that build young people’s character and improve mental health, it’s about so much more than improving physical health.
Many companies and organisations choose to give up to 5 days annually for employees to volunteer during working hours (subject to work commitments) to help contribute to the wider community and also help them to develop skills. Staff can be released individually or in teams to support community organisations and charities.
MSP offers a range of information and services to support employer-supported volunteering that you can check out below.
