Employer-supported Volunteering

It is often challenging for people in paid employment to find the time to volunteer given the combination of work and personal commitments. This is why Employer-Supported Volunteering (ESV) is so valuable!

ESV is where an employer in any sector – business, community and voluntary sector (CVS), or public – allows employees a specified number of hours a year to volunteer during working hours.

ESV benefits the employer and employees also help organisations contribute to wider social and environmental goals.

Employers can support employees to volunteer themselves and/or support group-volunteering activities for their staff, which also supports team-building.
