Performing community service can be a great way to enhance your business profile, establish important professional relationships, and gain new customers while at the same time strengthening your community.
When deciding on a volunteer project you need to consider a few things first before you make your choice. Make sure that the time and effort you put into your selected project will make a large impact on your business. Look at volunteer projects that are in some way connected or related to the type of business that you already conduct, this will boost your image in that business sector even more.
Most importantly when choosing your volunteer project you need to think about the scheduling factor. Talk with the director of the volunteer project first to make sure that there is some sort of flexible scheduling that wont interfere too much if at all with the current role that you already have in your own business.
How has volunteer work improved your business?
