Volunteering boosts employment and health

In Poland, Kompania Piwowarska worked with an independent NGO, the Volunteering Centre, to analyse its employee volunteering programme. To understand, measure and manage the value of the programme by placing a monetary value on its social outcome, the company used the Social Return on Investment (SROI) calculation. The evaluation covered 19 projects carried out in conjunction with 18 non-profit organisations, looking at their long-term nature and the engagement of employees and local communities and reviewing tangible and intangible outcomes.
