Tailor made for you

At TimeBank we design employee volunteering programmes that leave a long-lasting legacy.

We’ll work closely with your company to learn more about your business and the specific needs of your employee volunteering programme, to design a package that: 

  • Fully aligns with your company’s core values and overall organisational objectives
  • Is designed to complement your existing Corporate Responsibility and Learning and Development programmes
  • Encourages engagement and social awareness across your organisation

So if you need expert support to design and implement an outstanding employee volunteering programme, you’ve come to the right place. 

One example of how we built a programme that reflects the values and brand of a company is our work with EE. Our partnership began in 2006 when TimeBank provided T-Mobile’s employee volunteering programme.

When EE employees expressed an interest in skills-based volunteering opportunities, we were ready to support them to help local communities make the most of technology. 

EE employees share their digital skills at techy tea parties which help to demystify mobile phones, digital cameras and iPads and show how easy it is to get online and get connected.

In feedback, 94% EE employees said they would volunteer again; 89% said they would talk positively about their company's community programme and when asked ‘what sparked your interest in volunteering?’ 86% wanted to give something back.

We were thrilled when this programme gained a Prime Minister’s Big Society Award for its digital skills volunteering programme. 

Dan Perlet, Director of Corporate and Financial Affairs at EE says: “Digital inclusion is an important issue for us. TimeBank’s employee volunteering programme has helped us to develop digital skills-based volunteering among our staff to help local communities make the most of technology and being online, such as our popular techy tea parties.”

We’re extending this model to other companies where employees want to utilise their skills for the good of the community. We’ve worked with Nectar on a series of techy tea parties, too.
