Do you know how your volunteers want to be recognized? / Savez-vous de quelle façon vos bénévoles veulent être reconnus?

By Volunteer Canada at 11:49 am Monday, Apr, 18 2016 • 0 Comments

National Volunteer Week is the time to formally recognize volunteers across Canada. However, on-going recognition is important for volunteers to feel appreciated year-round.

The Volunteer Recognition Tool helps volunteer managers plan meaningful recognition activities. Volunteers take the quiz to find out what their language of recognition is, and then share the results with their manager. Some may prefer heartfelt hoorays or receiving goodies and gifts. You can use this information to plan meaningful and effective recognition activities.

Happy National Volunteer Week, Canada! Everybody knows this week is all about giving, but have you ever stopped to ask yourself why giving matters?

You may answer: Because giving your time, talent or treasure to a good cause helps people in need. Or, because giving helps us to connect with people in our communities. Or, because it’s simply the right thing to do.
