From our blog
In our latest blog post, Rob asks five questions of Starbucks as they pilot a new Corporate Social Responsibility initiative in the USA where the company’s staff will be encouraged to spend up to twenty hours a week working for local non-profits.
"I can see many non-profits stampeding to avail themselves of 20 hours a week of ‘free labour’ They would prefer these ‘service fellows’ to those annoying regular volunteers who: sometimes don’t turn up; gripe if their expenses don’t get paid; moan when nobody thanks them for coming; and are a huge risk because they don’t get paid and so can’t be trusted or relied upon.”
From our monthly article for Third Sector magazine
In this month’s article, Rob tears apart the UK government’s new civil society strategy for its abject failure to take volunteering seriously.
"I was especially dismayed to see that volunteer management isn’t mentioned once! Throughout the whole document there is no recognition of the need for effective leadership to engage volunteers. Perhaps ministers think all that volunteering happens by magic!"
