Internal comms and volunteers: sector perception, relationships and looking to the future
How does your charity perceive, talk about and behave towards its volunteers? And is this approach enabling you to move forward or holding you back?
At this Internal Comms Group event, we discussed the challenges we face around the perception of and engagement with volunteers. We also explored how we, as internal communicators, can foster a culture that values volunteers and in turn, creates a strong, dedicated volunteer base.
