There’s a fabulous article in the newspaper today about a group of WestJet employees volunteering in the Dominican Republic.The 50 WestJet employees are taking part in a 10-day humanitarian effort to rebuild homes for impoverished families. The experience is called Hero Holiday, and it’s organized by a Canadian charity called Live Different.
What’s so great about this story isn’t just the fact that it’s a story about volunteers doing great work. It’s the support the employees have received from WestJet. The WestJet employees raised $1,150 each, while WestJet kicked in $1,000 per person to help support their efforts.
Helping employees volunteer for a charity event or contribute to their community is a simple and effective way to build team spirit, boost morale, and improve your company’s image while giving back in a worthwhile way.
