Corporate help: lending your support

If your business is going well but you want to do more, consider donating staff labour to alleviate poverty, help the environment, or advance health research. Ask not-for-profit organisations if they have a corporate program: it may be for a couple of hours a week, which you can rotate among your staff; or you could designate a day when everyone chips in.

Devoting a fraction of labour to assisting worthy causes can help your staff rediscover the community beyond work, inspire team bonding and leave a lasting, positive message about your business in the public domain.
