Employee Volunteer Programs a recent question posed on the LinkedIn Hand on Discussion Group…

10 Apr

Question posed

Is there a resource available that lists specific models being used by companies nationally for employee volunteer programs? I’m interested in learning about how different companies approach their employee volunteerism, and getting case studies of how employee volunteering helps a company’s bottom line would be especially helpful.

Bruce’s response

Hmmm… Employee Volunteer Programs Resources?

Great question @Nicolette Winner

    Excellent blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any user
    discussion forums that cover the same topics talked about here?

    I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Appreciate it!

      Sabrina, I recommend LinkedIn Discussion Groups. I belong to perhaps 50 Discussion groups browse discussions daily and perhaps actively post on about 5 – 10 in a given week. To find Groups that match you interest you can either do a search in LinkedIn or visit individual profiles, example: the groups I follow are listed at the bottom of my profile if you see one that interests you just click on Follow to see if it is a group you might want to join.

      There are also a wide variety of social collaboration platforms example: The World Bank host has convened perhaps 50 Groups/Communities of Practice on an External Social Collaboration Site called Collaboration for Development, https://collaboration.worldbank.org/ some groups have a fixed, fairly closed membership criteria, while others are fairly open to new members who share common interests.

      In general Communities of Practice or Knowledge Networks as they are sometime called are great sources for collaborative knowledge exchange.
