“Month of Volunteering in my Company”

Volunteering in a company is a turnkey solution for employee engagement for the benefit of sustainable development objectives.

Employee engagement at the heart of companies’ HR challenges

According to an IFOP PageGroup survey released last April, 75% of HR decision-makers indicate that the health crisis has accelerated greater awareness of societal and environmental issues within their company. A conscience also revealed to employees, who say they are 63% more attentive to the commitments of companies since the start of the COVID-19 crisis.

A commitment that must be placed in the service of the general interest

Engagement formats are multiplying with the help of digital, but companies must take a critical look at the missions made available to their employees. Among all those proposed, they must above all be vigilant about mobilizing their employees in the service of the general interest, and in particular the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the UN in 2015.

Planète Urgence has supported more than 10,000 volunteers in 21 years on development sites by putting the search for impact at the heart of its action. The association has created a unique volunteering system, the Solidarity leave, which enables employees to be hired for a period of two weeks for full involvement in the heart of climate change issues. These development missions thus contribute to the enhancement of the skills and energies of employees in the service of structures that need it in 15 countries around the world. The year 2020 made it possible to create a new online engagement format, e-volunteering, which makes it possible to reach new employee profiles.

These missions are also real levers of commitment, motivation and allow the acquisition of new know-how and interpersonal skills, such as openness to difference, agility or teamwork.

Planète Urgence launches the “Month of Volunteering in my Company”, for impact volunteering

With the support of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and France Volontaires, Planète Urgence is launching the “Month of Volunteering in my Company” in order to promote this solidarity commitment.

Today relatively few companies and employees know or have access to volunteering in their organization. It is a little-known device and yet extremely powerful in terms of impact and transformation of society and the company. At a time when commitment becomes a necessity in the workplace, we are launching the month of volunteering in companies in October, in order to better disseminate this innovative device, beneficial to society, employees and businesses.
