Spotlight on Employee Volunteering
25 Sep 2017
An Employee Volunteer Program (EVP) or workplace volunteer program is a company-led initiative that aims to engage employees in volunteering in a structured way. The format of EVPs that companies adopt are diverse and wide-ranging. An EVP can facilitate volunteering activities ranging from one time ad-hoc projects (e.g. home make-overs) to long term projects (e.g. befriending). It can promote activities at an individual, group or company level. Some EVPs take a top-down approach and offer a calendar of employer-organised activities. Others provide a supportive framework for encouraging a bottom-up approach where employees organise their own volunteering activities with causes that they feel passionate about.
