Corporate volunteerism is a way for corporations and their employees to give back to their community. Volunteer time off (VTO) is a great tool to promote work/life balance and corporate responsibility, two things that are important to workers today. Using VTO as part of your comprehensive benefits package is a growing trend across the country. According to the Society for Human Resource Management, more than 25% of all organizations now offer some form of volunteering in the workplace. Companies they surveyed say the benefit helps in both recruitment and retention among workers who say that work/life balance is a concern.
At the Corona-Norco United Way, we offer Business/Corporate Volunteer opportunities on a "as-needed" basis. This is a coordinated effort between us and the business which varies depending on the amount of volunteers, time donated, and type of activity sought.
