“As we give, and when we acknowledge the needs of others, we open ourselves up to receive. And, what we receive is a reminder of what it means to be human – and that we are part of a larger, global narrative where we have a role to play. “
With these words, Chris Jarvis, CEO at Realized Worth invites you to explore the power of employee volunteering, highlighting the role that companies can play as gatekeepers of the employee volunteer experience, empowering global workforces to tackle some of our biggest social and economic challenges.
In Part 1, the course provides you with a theoretical framework, focusing on how to mobilize volunteers’ empathy so that volunteering moves from the transactional to the transformative. In Part 2, the course offers practical guidance on setting up programs and running volunteer events.
