  7. 7. Benefits of using Do-it in your organisation Visibly demonstrate your corporate support for volunteering and feature information about your employee volunteering and community programs alongside the Do-it search functionality.

Help charities local to your business, which have the opportunity to use the skills, expertise and knowledge of your employees. Gather valuable data for you to report on the level of volunteering activity.

  10. 10. Case study: Do-it and Centrica Briana Whitlock, Corporate Responsibility Officer at Centrica tells us how using the power of Do-it has helped Centrica employees get involved in volunteering…. “Our approach is to enable our employees to support the causes they care about through their volunteering activities. That’s why we’ve developed the Get Involved programme – to help employees who want to participate in volunteering. Get Involved provides toolkits, a calendar of upcoming opportunities and other resources such as the Do-it syndication feed. We believe that by supporting our employees in carrying out volunteering activities, whether during business hours or in their own time, they gain positive feelings about the company and feel more engaged. Volunteering also helps to develop employees’ skills that they can then apply at work. This is all in addition, of course, to the benefits to the communities our employees are reaching out to.”
  11. 11. Case study: Do-it and Centrica cont…. “The Do-it syndication feed provides our employees with an easily accessible tool to be able to find activities in their local area that fit with their availability and interests. We have an average of 258 searches each month for opportunities, with 5412 searches in total since we took on the feed in November 2008. The feed has been a great tool for our employees. The statistics we receive each month inform us of the interest in volunteering throughout the year, which enables us to provide more timely campaigns and relevant opportunities.”
  12. 12. Partnering with Do-it is a superb opportunity for your company to make a direct and demonstrable investment in employee volunteering. Not only are you investing in a powerful tool that can help to transform your employee volunteering programme, you will also be supporting Do-it and the UK's volunteering electronic infrastructure.
