As Corporate Social Responsibility becomes more strategic and embedded in businesses, there is a wide interest in skill-based volunteering. Nonprofits benefit from the variety of skills and expertise that help them increase their capacity and meet growing challenges. At the same time, the corporate sector creates greater impact on critical social issues by offering professional expertise. It is however extremely critical to tie in skill-based volunteering to the overall human resource strategy of the organization by having a clear volunteer engagement approach.
This session focuses on the success factors for skill-based volunteering and aims to shed light on how such initiatives can be measured for impact maximization to demonstrate value to the stakeholders. Through the discussion, the panel will discuss best practices and successful models of impactful skill-based volunteering.
