What is Volunteerism ?

‘Volunteerism’ refers to the phenomenon of some employees volunteering to help others without any kind of external motivation. Some companies actively encourage their employees for volunteerism since it encourages team bonding.

The companies which encourage volunteerism might even offer time-offs or other benefits such as a holiday for engaging in it. The company might also provide additional resources for that employee to help them fulfil their purpose.

Another definition of volunteerism includes the concept of encouraging the employees to volunteer for any good social causes. The company might also be actively involved with it as it is free publicity for the company along with an opportunity to earn the goodwill of the people.
