Corporate social responsibility: volunteering on company time

publication date: Aug 23, 2012
Within most companies, it's not just the leaders of the organization who support the local community, but the employees as well.  And Randstad Canada, 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, in 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.
