Offering a variety of volunteer opportunities is one way to ensure that employees find at least one thing in which they’d feel comfortable participating. Has your company thought about incorporating virtual activities for your remote staff or those who have difficulty getting out of the office?
When you think about volunteers, the typical image of a team planting a community garden, revitalizing a local park or painting a lively mural at a school comes to mind. Yet all around the globe, at any given time, thousands (if not millions) of engaged citizens volunteer virtually — using their computers, the Internet, even their smart phones.
