Corporate and Employer-Supported Volunteering

Corporate volunteering is a type of an organized prosocial behavior which is often defined as the dedication of time, knowledge, or skills by an employee through a planned activity for an external social purpose, nonprofit, charitable group, or organization (Grant 2012; Rodell et al. 2016). Corporate volunteering is organized, encouraged, supported, and/or facilitated by an employer during company time or in an employee’s own time without additional compensation or direct personal remuneration (de Gilder et al. 2005). Employees volunteer with other parties, including local, domestic, or within the international community on behalf of the employer. Employees are the core target audience of corporate volunteering, but it sometimes incorporates their relatives, retired employees, suppliers, clients or business partners, and other stakeholders.
