National Volunteer Week is here and it’s time to celebrate the incredible impact corporate volunteers make all year long. National Volunteer Week is sponsored by Points of Light Institute & Hands On Network and is about “inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities”. Corporate volunteer programs provide a rich opportunity to help employees connect to the causes they care about and put your company’s CSR brand into practice.
