Surrey Youth Focus partner Business in the Community is co-ordinating Give & Gain Day, the UK’s only national day of employee volunteering.
Give & Gain Day connects skilled professionals with community organisations by matching them with a volunteering project. Business volunteers help with everything from allotment construction to employability workshops for the long term unemployed.
By making volunteering, fun, accessible and inspirational BiTC want to make it something that all businesses allow their staff to do in work time. Volunteering offers employees personal and professional growth, as well as increasing loyalty and motivation.
Give & Gain Day can become a focal point for a company’s year round volunteering activity, or a taster for businesses without anything in place.
In 2014, BiTC are aiming to inspire over 35,000 employees in the UK and abroad, to get out into their communities and volunteer their time for a good cause.
Give & Gain Day 2014 - Friday 16 May 2014
