'Business and charities must work together on volunteering opportunities' was the conclusion of research by the NCVO and CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) which revealed a lack of understanding between the two about the costs and benefits of volunteering.
The study 'On the brink of a Game Changer' looked at building sustainable relationships between companies and voluntary organisations.
Further study revealed that 65% of people would like to work for an employer that encourages and supports volunteering and 81% who took part in volunteering had increased community awareness.
We know at Communilab that businesses want to understand what is happening in their local area and support good work. We are connected to charities and voluntary groups delivering services to young people in need. Communilab is designed to be that opportunity to connect with these organisations.
