Change The World From Just Your Office!
Discover office based microvolunteering activities that any employee can participate in, be them skilled or unskilled. Our remit is to provide alternative suggestions to traditional volunteering activities, where you don’t even have to leave the workplace to do good. Our ‘Help From Work’ scheme is self running, and can be conducted anytime, anywhere, for anybody!
Enables employees to choose their own action, independent from each other!
Activities for Employer Supported Volunteering Projects
Convenient bundles of on-demand microvolunteering activities designed for lunchbreaks or designated employee volunteering time. Just choose and go! All activities are suitable for:
all employees from the Cleaner to CEO
mobile, non office based staff
temporary immobile, eg. on crutches
We do not provide impact / progress tracking functions, purely because many of the initiatives running a microvolunteering action supply it themselves. For convenience then, we’ve homed in on those initiatives that do provide this facility, whilst also providing guidance on ways in which to record volunteering activity in a microvolunteering environment.
Useful for employee volunteering schemes where individuals can choose their own activity, whilst also enabling them to record their impact for CSR reports.
These actions can be used via a shared login that enables people to work on the same task, either remotely or together in the same workplace!
Various methods can be used to record the impact / activity of a person taking part in a microvolunteering task. We briefly expand on a few of them.
