Within most companies, it's not just the leaders of the
organization who support the local community, but the employees as well. And Randstad
, a staffing, recruitment and HR services company, recommends
employers strengthen their corporate social responsibility by encouraging
employees to give back - on company time.
According to a recently released Statistics Canada
study entitled Employer Support of Volunteering
2010, 57% of employees in Canada who did volunteer work reported that they had
received some formal means of support to do so from their employer.
Quite simply, companies should care about CSR because their
employees do," says Stacy Parker
EVP of marketing for Ranstad Canada. Numerous studies indicate that a company's
CSR policies increasingly factor into a job-seeker's decision to work there.
