About this event

The best businesses fulfil their corporate social responsibility (CSR) through many different ways, but probably the most effective means is to engage employees to volunteer and give back to society. This is especially true with young employees, whose energy and drive can often make a significant impact through their community service. The challenge for businesses is to understand their young employees and what they want from volunteering, leverage on their passion and interest, and channel it all towards meaningful volunteering.

At this event, we will share with participants trends and new norms in the youth volunteering landscape in Hong Kong. We will highlight the various volunteering patterns among youth nowadays: from token volunteering to purpose-driven service; from purely-altruistic acts to incentive-based online platforms. With this background, we will offer ideas for businesses on how to improve the corporate volunteering experience for their young employees, whether this is conducted independently or in collaboration with other community partners, and create a real impact together.

Our target audience will be middle to senior level business leaders in the fields of CSR, human resources, corporate affairs, campus recruitment and marketing with the responsibility to drive their companies’ volunteering engagement programme / philanthropy / community investment strategies.

  • Mr. Ming Wai Lau, Director, MWYO
