Other companies offer matching gifts or dollars-for-doers programs and some very progressive companies participate in volunteer assignments. A company needs to decide which employee engagement efforts best fit their company culture. What I can offer are some best practices for each, starting with Volunteer Paid Time Off (VPTO).
