Bangalore: Business organizations are encouraging their employees to involve in community volunteering to demonstrate their social responsibility. This further helps them develop a good teamwork among its employees and further improve the capabilities and teaches new skills to the employees.

90% of the companies in the United States and about 30% in the United Kingdom are involved in employee volunteering services. The end result of employee volunteering is that companies are able to develop a good relationship with the community.

According to the 2011 Deloitte Volunteer Impact Survey, 61% of the Gen Y respondents who have never volunteered would consider a company’s commitment to the community when making a job decision.  The survey also reported that 93% of the respondents are satisfied or very satisfied with their employer while 96% reported that the corporate culture at their office is positive/ very positive.

However, 71% of the respondents reported that they are not able to participate in volunteer services as they don’t have the time to do so while 70% of the respondents favor a company that is committed to the community.

Have a look at the inforgraphic designed by Rachel Chaikof that shows the results of the 2011 Deloitte survey.
