Why encouraging employees to become trustees can boost their professional development

New research from the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) found that almost 4 in 10 Britons volunteer, with 77% saying it has improved their mental health and just over half (53%) saying it has improved their physical health. 74% said volunteering gave them more confidence and 71% that it gave them new skills and experience.

HR Directors can tap into this growing interest in volunteering by encouraging employees to become trustees. Charity trustees are the people who share responsibility for governing a charity and directing how it is managed and run.
