Volunteer United works with you to connect your employees with opportunities to learn about community needs and engage with your corporate philanthropy and social responsibility (CSR) goals. We help companies of all types and sizes drive significant social change across our community through volunteerism.
Our team of experts will create unique volunteer opportunities for your employees that educate and inspire as well as promote team building, enhance company culture and help solve community needs that no one can solve alone.
Employees who volunteer have a greater awareness and understanding of community needs, a sense of connectedness to their community and increased job satisfaction. Aligning your employees’ interests and passions with meaningful volunteer experiences can result in greater employee retention while building your company’s brand and reputation.
“When I volunteer with my coworkers, it fuels a sense of togetherness and unity because we’re working towards a common goal. My company is very strong when it comes to volunteerism, and that means a lot to me. I feel a sense of meaning and purpose when I help other people.”
– Kevin Baby, Mechanical Engineer, Xcel Energy
