National Standards for Volunteer Involvement: Standard 7 – Volunteer Recognition
Volunteer recognition ensures that the organisation understands the contribution made by its volunteers and that it lets them know that this contribution is appreciated.
In assessing the impact of volunteer contribution, the organisation should consider the results of the work performed by volunteers, the value to the organisation, and less tangible benefits such as volunteer contributions to change and innovation.
Meeting this standard assists the organisation to develop and maintain a respectful relationship with its volunteers, ensuring that volunteers are encouraged to actively participate in the business of the organisation, provide feedback and appreciate the way their work benefits the organisation.
In this month’s session, you will learn:
- How the organisation, employees and volunteers are involved in the evaluation of volunteer involvement.
- How to help people at all organisational levels articulate the organisation’s reasons and benefits for involving volunteers.
- How to provide feedback on the impact and value of volunteer contribution to the organisation and it’s work.
- How to organisations and managers can regularly acknowledge contributions made by volunteers and the positive impact
Training is provided by The Centre For Volunteering.
