Are You Experienced?

Having lunch with some relatives recently, my uncle mentioned he was thinking of doing some voluntary work. 

He runs a successful small business and there is no doubt that some of his skills and experienced would be valuable to a charity or NGO of some sort. 

My advice was that he should look into the idea and then his skills could then be matched to an organisation that needs them. 

Several months’ previously, I mentioned someone else to whom I’d spoken who had ‘time on his hands’ – another successful businessman, (although who had retired) and it struck me that he probably had skills and experience that would benefit an organisation as well. 

Reading through some media job descriptions recently, I noticed one or two companies whose employee benefits include charity days, for which I believe staff are paid, but can do voluntary work on those days.  

Imagine what could be achieved if every company did this…
