TSI European stakeholder organisation European Volunteer Centre (CEV) published a toolkit to help volunteer-involving organisations develop employee volunteering. It guides the user through a process that emphasises the importance of ensuring a common understanding in the organisation about the purpose and added value of employee volunteering projects and explains the different possible models.

The Workbook contains two exercises that can be done together with employers in order to establish an indication of possible compatibility for collaboration. They assist potential partners in reaching a closer understanding of each other’s needs and motivations. It is available in six languages other than English: Spanish, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, Polish and French.

This toolkit is a product of the Employee Volunteer European Network EVEN, established by CEV in 2013. EVEN aims to increase the number of employers and volunteer-involving organisations with the capacity and willingness to implement good quality employee volunteering and give greater visibility to these initiatives.
