On Monday, Deloitte released their study on the potential of Pro Bono as a corporate professional development tool. The phone survey was of Fortune 500 HR managers and was conducted by a third party using a robust sample. The results are really impressive and should help us convince companies of the value of pro bono.
91% of Fortune 500 HR managers agree that skills-based volunteering would add value to training and development programs, particularly as it relates to fostering business and leadership skills. Nearly 70% of their training and development budgets are projected to remain flat or go down in the next year AND all but 2% see pro bono as a lower cost solution.
This is powerful data in making the case for the potential of corporate pro bono programs. For more tips on how to get buy-in from company leader check out our resources.
