Companies can include their employees in the fight against poverty and start their social commitment together.
Corporate volunteering is that promoted and facilitated by the company for their employees. Therefore, it creates a space for a social connection between the company and its employees. On becoming involved together for a good cause, they defend the values that strengthen its professionals and the organisation as a whole.
Global Corporate Volunteering takes this opportunity even further, by offering companies the chance to contribute to an ambitious and pressing objective: the eradication of poverty, in a real context, with the difficulties and innovation and learning opportunities of an intense, international, professional and profoundly human experience.
Global Corporate Volunteering is one of the most interesting facets of Corporate Social Responsibility.
Professionals for Development, our corporate volunteering programme
Professionals for Development is a corporate volunteering programme open to all types of companies. The only requirement is commitment to tackling poverty. The employees not only dedicate their time in the programme, but they also offer their professional experience to help other people. The company finances the travel and stay of their employees, making it easier for them to spend part of their time volunteering in this way.
At CODESPA, with the company’s support, we look through our projects to find those best suited to the company’s profile and we help in the selection of employees to carry out the volunteering according to the specific needs detected, as the chosen employee must provide their professional knowledge. After this, we accompany, train and support our volunteers during the whole process.
More than 100 people and companies such as Carrefour, Antena 3, La Caixa and Canal de Isabel II have participated in this programme.
