What is Volunteerism? | Meaning & Definition | HR Glossary

Volunteerism in HR is the practice of encouraging and supporting employees to volunteer their time and skills to help others either through a company-sponsored program or through individual efforts. Corporations can use volunteerism as a form of corporate social responsibility to help build morale and develop team spirit. It can also involve the company providing incentives or rewards for employees who volunteer, such as additional vacation time or even monetary awards. It is the belief that the involvement of employees in community service programs is beneficial to the company and its employees, as it fosters a sense of commitment and pride in the organization.
