Company Volunteer Opportunities Enhance Worker Happiness and Pride - Talent IntelligenceEmployees who have volunteered with their company are 13 percent happier than those who haven’t — one of several workforce engagement benefits a recent survey of U.K. workers revealed encouraging employees to volunteer  may provide.

The survey also found employees who take advantage of company volunteer opportunities are 15 percent more satisfied with their lives and 15 percent more likely to recommend their company, which could help support their employer’s recruiting efforts.

Seventy-two percent of employees said they’re able to apply their skills when volunteering; all — 100 percent — of respondents said volunteering made them feel proud to work for their company.
