The European Employee Volunteering Awards aim to recognise companies of all sizes across Europe that have developed schemes that help people facing barriers to work increase their employability skills.

Run by the Business in the Community International Team and co-funded by the European Commission, the project is closely aligned to the European Year of Volunteering 2011. It is supported by Business in the Community's Awards for Excellence Manager Claire Brady and a consortium of expert partners, including four CSR360 GPN partners (UPJ, SMART Kolektiv, Warsaw Volunteer Centre, Foretica), CSR Europe, the Corporate Citizenship, the East England Development Agency and a group of international practitioners from KPMG and Freshfields. The European Employee Volunteering Awards Scheme is sponsored by Alliance Boots and Tata Consultancy Services.

There are currently excellent opportunities to profile leadership through sponsorship of individual Awards or the whole programme.


The European Commission announced on 3rd June 2009 that 2011 would be the European Year of Volunteering (EYV). This decision came after a 2 year campaign by European networks of volunteer organisations (including ENGAGE) and will entail a range of activities, programmes and events that will take place under the EYV umbrella.

One of the EYV 2011 flagship programmes is the 2011 Year of the Volunteer Awards Programme that will showcase best practice in European Employee Volunteering, focusing on effective and well measured programmes, which transfer skills for employability.

KPMG and Freshfields provided development funding to enable this programme to proceed. The support provided follows on from their long term commitment and support for corporate volunteering and their aim to extend engagement across Europe.

How to enter

Companies of all types and sizes in Europe are eligible to enter the European Employee Volunteering Awards. Participating companies must have developed employee volunteering schemes to enhance employability skills. For examples of such programmes, please see the case studies listed on the right.
Taking part

The European Employee Volunteering Awards are looking for innovative programmes which will help employees to gain new and valuable employability skills on a local and global level.

To participate please visit the Country Partners section to download the relevant application form. Here you will also find information about closing dates and contact information.

Please note that entries should be submitted directly to the Country Partner as a word document.


Companies can enter the Awards in 5 different categories:

Large Company & Small Company
Companies can enter for the Small Company Award or the Large Company Award category. Companies with fewer than 250 employees will be eligible for the Small Company Award – all others will automatically be entered into the Large Company Award.

Most Innovative
Companies can also select to enter our Most Innovative category. We are looking for examples of companies doing things differently, finding new ways to do things and new ways to address challenges.

We welcome entries from companies whose programmes are at all stages of development and the Newcomer category will help identify companies at the early stages of development, who have established exciting programmes and built a platform for future success.

Public Authority
This category is for entries that focus on building the infrastructure and supportive environment for volunteering and employability skills, i.e. bodies that work as enablers for corporate volunteering.
