Why not get your team volunteering?
MVN can help make rewarding employee volunteering accessible to everyone.
Research shows that volunteering helps staff develop leadership, decision-making and negotiation skills. It can also help staff develop as individuals, boost morale and improve retention*
Your employees will make a real difference to the daily operations and goals of local voluntary and community groups. Volunteering days can be fun and (sometimes) physical - and give an insight into how local charities can support the people of Medway.
Corporate volunteering helps to demonstrate your company’s value and commitment to the charity sector - and here are some of the current corporate volunteering opportunities available in Medway that you and your team could get involved with:
