Many companies and organizations have programs where its employees can give back to the communities surrounding the company or organization. Giving back can be in the form of a company-wide community service day, matching funds for donations employees make to various charities or organizations, company sponsorship of charity events, donations of goods or services to non-profits, etc. The possibilities are endless. Companies and organizations do this because they are important part of the communities in which they reside. They see the value of that community and want to help sustain and support it. Many employees will participate in company opportunities to “Give Back” because they are part of the company’s community, they feel good about helping others, or just because they feel it’s the right thing to do.
Whether looking for a job or if you are already employed you too can give back. There are many ways to give back to the community, monetary donations, donations of goods and services, giving your own time and volunteering, attending a fund raising event, etc. Showing a company you want to work for that you value the surrounding community is quality most companies look for in an employee.
