‘Employee Volunteering – What have you got to Offer?’ – The Third Meeting of the Employee Volunteering Network.

Half day workshop taking place on Tuesday 24th July 9.30am – 1pm

KC Stadium, Hull, Main Entrance, West Stand, Hull – Needler Suite

Background to the event

This is a joint event hosted and sponsored by KC with the Hull University Business School and the University of Sheffield Management School. It is designed to bring together business, public and third
sector organisations to explore the value in working together to develop employee volunteering for maximum community and business impact.

This is an ongoing network of organisations and professionals that work in the field of employee volunteering and participation and it also is open to anyone who is working in this field. This meeting of the network focuses upon the need for a stronger partnership approach which matches the requirements of both business and third sector partners. Including the marketing and costing needs for the third sector and the skills and development requirements of employers. It is hoped that by creating a space for organisations to come together that new more effective ways of working will emerge.

The workshop will feature presentations from organisations developing brokerage and marketing models around ESV and will begin with open plenary presentations by Anna Millar (KC), Nigel Mills and Emma Platt-Lowe (Humber East Yorkshire Community Foundation) and Dave Smith (The Social Enterprise Support Centre, Leeds) and Tim McGinley (University of Reading). The remainder of the workshop will then be spent in working groups where we will develop an outline of the component that each party needs to gain from ESV. Followed by a short feedback session and ending with a lift-pitch/speed dating session over lunch. It should be fun!

The event is free to attend. To register please follow this link.

There is also a linkedin group linked to the network which you can join here.
