What does an effective EVP look like?

by Deni Archer

Mar 19, 2014
The session opened with a look at trends in employee volunteerism, based on Trialogue's research on the topic from 2007 and 2013. Desiree Story of FirstRand Volunteers gave some insight into implementation, gleaned from the company's 'Beyond Painting Classrooms' engagements. Attendees looked at what types of volunteering are most commonly implemented by companies, and the pros and cons of each approach. The discussion then led on to ways of ensuring EVPs are successful, and a win-win for all involved.
