3 Days Volunteering Leave Survival Guide

Ben Darlington | 19 February 16

David Cameron has famously pledged to to provide all workers with 3 days volunteering leave a year, which will have huge consequences for employee volunteering and CSR teams nationwide if introduced.

We know that many of the businesses we work with are concerned about how they’d deal with organising volunteering on that scale if the legislation came into place.

Don’t panic, Benefacto’s got you covered. As well as keeping up to date with the latest updates on the policy from the Cabinet Office here, we’ve also published a handy 10 step survival guide.

The guide covers everything you need to create a really successful volunteering scheme, including:

  • How to create a volunteering policy
  • Tips to get your employees engaged
  • Maximising community impact
  • Measuring your results

It’s a jungle out there in the world of professional volunteering, so, as the Boy Scouts wisely said, always be prepared!
