Benefits of volunteering for you and your employer

Benefits for you:

Volunteers in the pilot programme enjoyed the Lab in a Lorry experience and found it tremendously rewarding. Their motivation was increased and their enthusiasm for science renewed. This has obvious benefits to individuals' personal and professional development.

Benefits for your employer:

Schools, youth groups, and communities benefit from the experience of Lab in a Lorry. Goodwill is generated between them and the local companies who support staff in becoming volunteers.

Other potential opportunities for employees individually and corporately include:

  • Team-building exercises that challenge the team's creativity and motivate individuals
  • Tours around schools and other locations in areas where the company has facilities, increasing employee recognition of company's community engagement and pride in the company,
  • Presence of the Lab at your company events.
  • Other ideas resulting from discussions with people at your company
