The generation of Millennials volunteer the least, but with heavy schedules at school and work, it’s no wonder why it’s hard for them to become motivated to give back. Fortunately, there are several practices that you can engage in that could potentially motivate your millennial employees to volunteer more frequently. A great place to start is by creating a giving environment around your workplace. By modeling the behavior you’d like to see in your staff, they are much more likely to display the same levels of compassion.
