Why Your Employee Volunteers Are Bored (And What To Do About It)

Oct 28, 2021 3:00 PM ET

If you’ve noticed apathy, frustration or disengagement among your employee volunteers, congratulations! It means you’re paying attention. (Also…rest assured that you’re not alone!) If you can get curious about your volunteers’ negative emotions (instead of being annoyed, tempting though it may be), you have an opportunity to identify what’s not working about the experience – the first step in turning it around. In a recent RealTalk webinar, we teed up this very real issue of employee volunteer boredom to Angela Parker, CEO of Realized Worth.

Here are Angela’s key takeaways:

  1. Your employee volunteers are bored because the work doesn’t matter (and it if matters they don’t know why or how or to whom).
  2. Your employee volunteers are bored because the value of the experience is limited to the timeframe of the event itself.
  3. Your employee volunteers are bored because you’re not meeting them at their highest level of contribution.
