Engaging and retaining volunteers made easier through Eproductive’s Team
Volunteer retention is of paramount importance for charities, and the issue has been garnering increasing attention in the charity press of late. The Guardian Voluntary recently alluded to the difficulties of keeping volunteers in an organisation in its advisory piece, ‘How to engage and retain your volunteers in your charity work’. Advice included meeting a volunteer face to face, ensuring a volunteer understands his or her role fully and – critically – saying thank you.
Eproductive’s Team is a platform allowing you to say thank you and much more, communicating with your volunteers, and facilitating better retention. Team can be accessed via smartphone, tablet and PC; functionality can include a new starter Welcome, News, Documents, Videos, Surveys, and Achievements. Content can be targeted based upon the individual’s role, for example volunteers, staff, trustees, and corporate partners. The product is already in use with a number of Eproductive’s clients across a variety of sectors, with the most recent roll-outs in 2016 including a museum and a hospice.
Team makes the demanding challenge of looking after volunteers easier. Better looked after volunteers are likely to be better engaged and, significantly, better retained.
