Give & Gain Day is the UK’s only national day of employee volunteering. Organised by Business in the Community the day marks an annual movement of businesses that empower their employees to take action and tackle key social issues in the community during work time. For the second year in a row, Business in the Community is partnering with the CSR360 Network in order to make this a global day of corporate volunteering. Join us on 18 May 2012.

Why Give & Gain Day?
Give & Gain Day seeks to raise the profile of employee volunteering, encouraging more employers to support their employees to volunteer in work time and celebrating the employers that continue to provide their employees with opportunities to support their local communities.
Every year feedback from Give & Gain Day participants demonstrated the strength of the event as a vehicle for engaging new participants and encouraging ongoing community based activity. This year 47% of Give & Gain Day participants in the UK were new to volunteering within work time and 98% of all participants reported a desire to take part in employer supported volunteering again.
