This research, produced in partnership with the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), has been published to explore how better collaboration between business and the voluntary sector is key to achieving successful employer-supported volunteering (ESV) placements.
Our research, On the brink of a gamechanger? Building sustainable partnerships between companies and voluntary organisations, found a lack of understanding between charities and companies about the costs and benefits involved in ESV, and highlights the significant gaps in employer knowledge about volunteering, and explores assumptions made by each sector that risk undermining the potential of volunteering initiatives. The report includes recommendations for companies and voluntary organisations to take ESV forward.
