The Skills Businesspeople Gain on Nonprofit Boards

On the heels of “Trustees Week” in the UK, Minister for Civil Society Nick Hurd makes the case for why business leaders should encourage employees to get involved in the nonprofit sector as board members.

Bill Palladino – MLUI‘s insight:

A short article from London, UK on the benefits to business people of serving on nonprofit boards.  It’s an idea that’s fundamentally inverse of our common expectations, but one that’s absolutely true.  I can attest to this effect myself.  It’s not just about giving. You, or your employees, can gain from service.  And here’s a link to the original research http://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/business/economic-research-and-information/research-publications/Pages/volunteering-The-business-case-the-benefits-of-corporate-volunteering-programmes-in-education.aspx
