The European Employee Volunteering Awards, which ran during 2011, recognised companies of all sizes across Europe that have developed schemes that help people facing barriers to work increase their employability skills.
European Winning Companies:
The project was organised by Business in the Community and co-funded by the European Commission. It was run in 22 European Countries and was closely aligned to the European Year of Volunteering 2011.
It was supported by a consortium of expert partners, including four CSR360 GPN partners (UPJ, SMART Kolektiv, Warsaw Volunteer Centre, Foretica), CSR Europe, the Corporate Citizenship, the East England Development Agency and a group of international practitioners from KPMG and Freshfields. The Awards Scheme was sponsored by Alliance Boots, Tata Consultancy Services and Hewlett Packard.
KPMG and Freshfields provided development funding to enable this programme to proceed. The support provided follows on from their long term commitment and support for corporate volunteering and their aim to extend engagement across Europe.
