Conference Board 2009 Report Sees 45% Increase in Employee Volunteering

Thanks to Chris Jarvis at Realizing Your Worth for pointing this out...

The Conference Board just released a report, The 2009 Corporate Philanthropy Agenda: How the Economic Downturn is Affecting Corporate Giving, based on a February 2009 survey of 158 companies on planned changes in corporate giving programs.

Although the report noted that there was going to be a decrease in giving, it also stated that "Volunteerism will see the biggest increase, with 45 percent of the survey respondents reporting a resources increase."

Although many companies are experiencing layoffs and significant cutbacks in their budgets, they can still demonstrate their commitment to the community by allowing their employees to continue to make an impact.
