Corporate Volunteering Days
Corporate volunteering is a rewarding team-building initiative that enables groups of employees to create or enhance community gardens and growing spaces, or to carry out hands-on practical conservation work to improve greenspaces for biodiversity and wildlife.
How will you benefit?
Corporate volunteering has been shown to:
- Increase employee morale and motivation as employees have an enjoyable experience and make a difference to the environment
- Enhance the skills and self-confidence of employees as they take on new challenges and learn new skills
- Encourage team building and communication of employees as they work together in a fresh environment on a ‘level playing field’
- Connect your team with the community you work in
- Improve business green credentials and help meet Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) objectives
Sincere thanks again for such a fun and rewarding day – we had a few aches yesterday, but nothing too bad, which is reassuring! Please pass on my thanks to the whole team from TCV as well, particularly from “Team Pond”!Hayley, Cancer Research UK
What projects are on offer?
With locations across Central Scotland, projects range from creating habitats such as ponds or wildlife meadows for threatened species, improving access to neglected public green spaces by building new paths and steps, learning traditional skills such as hedgelaying, or creating spaces for communities to grow food.
I really enjoyed the day, really felt a sense of achievement and giving something back.Gabriel, RBS
Throughout the day, the volunteers will be able to choose from a range of tasks requiring various skills and fitness levels. They will receive appropriate training and learn new skills whilst working at their own pace. The group and individual will receive the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment from achieving the tasks and making a significant contribution to the community.
Everyone really enjoyed it. I think it was the perfect balance between variety and substance so everyone had a good sense of achievement by the end. Looking forward to the next one!Tom, JP Morgan
