Not only do we run the largest volunteering service in NSW, we've also helped some of Australia's leading companies use corporate volunteering as an ongoing business strategy.
The Centre for Volunteering's Corporate Volunteering consultancy service assists companies to develop their Corporate Volunteering Program. The Centre also assists companies to enhance an existing corporate volunteering program.
If you wish to engage The Centre to assist you with an employee volunteering program, The Centre will meet with you to discuss what particular business or brand strategies you would like to promote by incorporating an employee volunteering program in your corporate social responsibility objectives.
Secondly, The Centre can advise you about the optimal opportunities available in relation to the size, composition and management of your volunteer team or individual staff opportunities – and also liaise with your volunteer team manager to discuss the staff's particular interests, aims or objectives.
Thirdly, The Centre uses its Volunteer Referral Service to help you find suitable volunteering opportunities. As the peak body for volunteering in NSW, hundreds of not-for-profit member organisations rely on The Centre to act as a conduit to corporate engagement. Therefore, The Centre can offer companies a wide range of volunteering activities to choose from.
Fourthly, The Centre will discuss with you, your employee volunteering program to ensure that it is fulfilling the aims, interests and objectives of your company's strategic program as well as the aims of your individual volunteer team members, while at the same time offering genuine support for a not-for-profit partner.
And finally, The Centre will assist you to evaluate the employee volunteering program to ensure that it meets the expectations of your individual volunteers, that it offers a genuine support to the not-for-profit and that it truly meets the objectives of the company's corporate social responsibility goals.
