How Volunteerism Enhances Workplace Skills

Book description

Performing volunteer work for a charitable cause can help employees develop valuable skills for their jobs. But programs with that goal can backfire if volunteers believe that their employer’s real motive is to profit through improved performance. People are more receptive when managers are transparent about the gains that can be achieved for all parties and when they’re given time and space to reflect on their experiences.
