"The real benefit of corporate volunteerism is not only the moral good being done for recipients, but the bonding between employer and employee. Employees sense that this is a good place to work. It has values beyond productivity and profit." - Jack Regan, Wilmerhale
We know that volunteerism needs to provide more than just “feel-good” value to your business. The story you and others are able to tell about your corporate citizenship is more important than ever—to your reputation and brand, to existing and future clients and employees, and, ultimately, to your bottom line.
