Listen Up! Doing Corporate Citizenship Better, Together - January 2022
One of the most popular employee volunteering activities (when it is allowed) is working with animals. The human-animal bond is a powerful aspect of our history. Yet it can be a sticky topic when it comes to employee volunteering for a variety of reasons.
