Does your workplace support a culture of giving back? Working on a special company fundraising or community project or volunteering to serve on a committee for a company event gives you a unique opportunity to give back, and exposes you to other business goals of the organization while providing opportunities to meet and work with people from the entire organization—and often outside organization as well!
Just remember, volunteering is hard work and at times, you may wonder what’s in it for you? Yes, you meet new people and make connections, gain skills and experience. But more importantly, volunteering also opens you up to seeing a bigger world; doing something for something you really care about while developing a spirit of generosity and stewardship.
