The critical need for employee engagement

The competition for talent has collided with a rise in social consciousness to transform workforce expectations and drive an increasingly urgent need to improve employee engagement.

Recognising the link between volunteering and employee engagement is one thing. Activating a successful volunteering programme then requires a multifaceted strategy.

This paper explores:

  • Major societal, government and environmental shifts that have driven the need for improvements in employee engagement
  • The fundamentals of a great employee experience, and research on the impressive impact it can have when implemented in the right way
  • How to build a volunteering programme that effectively engages employees, increases trust and boosts happiness
  • Going beyond employee engagement - to the wider positive impacts volunteering can have on local communities
  • Key recommendations and next steps for businesses looking to adopt employee volunteering in their own organisation
