Do you have employee volunteer programs as part of your benefits package?
A lot of companies do this nowadays.
Every company I worked for actually gave us 2-volunteer days a year.
Want to know how many times I did this throughout my 12-year career?
Zero. Goose egg. Nada. None.
Isn’t that so sad?
It’s wasn’t because I was heartless or had a lack of interest. Quite the opposite. I would have LOVED to have spent my day with people I worked with to help others. That would be such an awesome team building day.
Did the companies or groups I worked for ever talk about taking a team building day to volunteer?
Why didn’t we ever make this happen?
Well, to be honest we got busy with the hustle and bustle. The never ending projects and requests. As sad as it is to say, we got busy and forgot.
We didn’t really have reminders either.
That’s why when I heard of a tool called KyndHub; I was immediately intrigued.
Corporate wellness isn’t just about the physical. It’s about the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of a person as well. And as individuals we all need to connect with others. We all need to take time out of our own me-centric thoughts and help one another. It’s just good for the soul. I think we all want to make a positive difference in this world.
What better way to build camaraderie and teamwork?!
After speaking to the Founder and CEO of KyndHub, Justin Kruger, I knew that I had to share this with you.
Like me, he is from the corporate world.
Like me, he wants to make a positive difference in this world.
Like me, he sees the importance of making a difference in the place we spend 1/3 of our lives; and that’s at the workplace.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a new term that I was introduced to by Justin. Read more about it here and why it matters to organizations like yours today.

TIP: Be sure to get your executive and leadership team involved. That will make a huge difference in your participation numbers!
Kyndhub makes volunteering fun where you can create team challenges! How cool, huh?
I wish this would’ve been around when I was in the corporate world. Maybe I would have actually used my volunteer days to make a difference.

Out of curiosity, what percent of your employees actually use their volunteer days? I would love to know in the comments below.
