Why corporate volunteering?

Corporate volunteering not only has a positive impact on society. It also delivers tremendous value to your business and your employees. In short: Corporate volunteering is a real business case!

Promote corporate culture, team building and motivation

Employees whose volunteer work is encouraged by their company are more satisfied, more motivated and more committed to their company’s goals. Because corporate volunteering strengthens the company culture and team cohesion, they feel a stronger bond with their company. This in turn leads to measurably lower staff turnover.

The more employees participate in corporate volunteering, the stronger the positive effects. The key is to offer as diverse a range of volunteer activities as possible, reflecting the different opportunities and preferences of employees. Because: Everyone wants to and can help differently. Our motto at purpozed is therefore apt: “Corporate volunteering for all”.

Increasing “future skills” and sustainable innovative strength

If companies want to be successful in the long term, they need employees with “future skills”.

The problem: Traditional HR development formats are not well suited to specifically promoting and developing non-digital future soft skills such as creativity, innovation skills, and the ability to engage in dialog and conflict.

Corporate volunteering can solve this problem.
