Volunteering benefits everyone – the volunteers, their employers, and the community. Individuals who volunteer in their community are 30 percent happier and satisfied with their lives, according to research. Companies and businesses that incorporate volunteer opportunities in the workplace consistently report a higher level of employee satisfaction, morale and team effectiveness.
