Corporate volunteering is a fun way for you or your staff to spend time outdoors undertaking physical work on one of the stunning wildlife reserves we manage.
Jeremy Miles, Deputy CEO at Firstport, a development agency for start-up social entrepreneurs and enterprises, visited our Loch Ardinning Wildlife Reserve with a small staff team to pin 300 mulch mats around new tree saplings. Commenting after the workday, he said: “We made great connections with each other, discussing some work matters but mostly just building relationships. A great way to grow a trusting and cohesive team.”
During 2023, we worked with 10 corporate groups on 7 different reserves undertaking a range of work including raking wildflower meadows, tree maintenance, removing peregrine watch structures and footpath maintenance. These work parties enabled the Trust to undertake many labour-intensive tasks. Other jobs that can be performed include clearing scrub from peat bogs, removing tree tubes from trees, tree weeding, bracken control and control of invasive non-native species.
There are numerous benefits for staff other than enjoying a day out such as having a sense of work satisfaction from carrying out practical work, spending time in nature and a boost to performance at work through better team working.
