Give & Gain Day in the West Midlands
Business in the Community’s Give & Gain Day 2015
Business in the Community’s Give & Gain Day is a celebration of the incredible power of employee volunteering. By getting unprecedented numbers of people out volunteering across the globe, we’re championing the talent, skill and energy found in business and the role it can play in helping communities prosper.
The next Give & Gain Day is taking place on Friday 15th May 2015.
In 2014 over 824 volunteers from a wide range of businesses got involved in projects across the West Midlands to support their communities. The results of our volunteer survey confirm that volunteering has a direct benefit in both the community organisations and the businesses involved:
- 96% of respondents would like to volunteer again with their company.
- 94% of respondents felt the time required as a volunteer was rewarded by the benefits of their experience.
- 71% of respondents thought the skills they developed will be useful in a work context.
