Working in partnership with companies

More and more companies are giving their staff opportunities to share their professional skills with good causes. We have a range of options to help you do this. For an initial chat, please phone Andrew Phillips on 020 7840 5661 or email partner@reachvolunteering.org.uk

Why skills-based volunteering is good for your business

Professional development

When staff take on trustee or skills-based volunteering roles, they get to deploy their professional skills in new contexts, broaden their perspective and develop  entirely new skills. This provides rich, experiential learning. Staff learn important leadership skills such as strategic development, effective decision making, governance, influencing and negotiating.

Attract and retain staff

You can differentiate your company in eyes of new recruits, and boost employee engagement, by putting your values into action. People are keen to work at an ethical company with a commitment to social change. By offering volunteering opportunities with a high social impact, you can give staff a way to connect with causes that they care about, and demonstrate commitment to your corporate responsibility goals.

How we can help

We design our service according to your business needs. Examples include:

Board placement

Professional development for your current / aspiring leaders

We will support your staff to find rewarding trustee roles. We tailor our service to meet your requirements but a typical programme includes:

  • an introductory workshop on becoming a trustee to inform and inspire staff
  • individual interviews to explore employees interests and expertise, and to agree action plans.
  • structured support to help each employee secure a trustee role

Corporate membership

Diverse opportunities for employees to volunteer their talents

We can offer an unparalled range of volunteering opportunities to your staff, to match their interests, skills and location. We can stream opportunities to your website or provide an agreed sign-up route, and track and report on engagement.
