This Month's Challenge

Since 2006, Deloitte has annually researched some aspect of volunteering and community engagement. In its 2016 volunteer impact research, Deloitte surveyed 2506 individuals responsible for hiring employees. They were asked about the connections between volunteer experience and skills desired in employees. 

QUESTIONS: What are the five types of volunteering the Deloitte study describes? How is skill-based volunteering described?

BONUS: 85% or more of respondents indicated volunteering develops four traits desireable in employees. What are the 4?

RESEARCH HINT: The study is the first download on THIS PAGE.
