As a business with social impact at its core, Datagraphic recognises how working collectively can make a real difference. That’s why we have introduced a corporate volunteering policy that significantly contributes to the social value we deliver whilst also creating an environment to promote employee engagement. This initiative underpins Datagraphic’s commitment to its social impact strategy and how it supports the community.

Why is corporate volunteering important to Datagraphic?

Corporate volunteering, also known as employee volunteering, encourages and supports our staff to volunteer their time and skills for community service during work hours. Our employees can take up to two fully paid days annually to participate in volunteer activities. They can work with local or national non-profit organisations depending on their passions or interests and leverage professional or practical skills to make meaningful contributions to community initiatives.

Sarah Butler, Managing Director of Datagraphic, says:

“We are thrilled to launch our new corporate volunteering policy. Our employees are our greatest asset, and by empowering them to give back to the community, we are not only enhancing our social impact but also promoting a culture of compassion and teamwork. This policy reflects our dedication to making a positive difference in the world and supporting the causes that matter most to our team.”

Benefits of our corporate volunteering policy

Datagraphic is a business that delivers what it promises. We, therefore, spotted a gap for a tool to further engage our staff in achieving our ESG goals, particularly when considering community interests.

Datagraphic staff have welcomed our new policy, explaining that often they want to give back to society but can’t participate during office hours. As a result, providing paid time off for volunteering opportunities helps our team to pursue their social conscience and recognise our company values. On a personal level, employees can also gain new skills and experiences to enhance their professional growth and development.

Taking it further, our volunteering initiatives demonstrate that Datagraphic is dedicated to achieving what we have pledged to our clients, partners, and potential employees.

Our employee volunteering policy provides the following benefits:

  • Enhanced employee engagement and satisfaction: Employees feel more connected to the company and its values, leading to higher job satisfaction and retention rates.
  • Skill development: Employees have the opportunity to develop new skills, gain leadership experience, and expand their professional network through volunteering.
  • Positive community impact: By supporting local and national non-profit organisations, Datagraphic can make a tangible difference in the communities we serve.
  • Strengthened brand reputation: Demonstrating a commitment to social responsibility enhances our reputation among customers, partners, and potential employees.


Introducing a corporate volunteering policy is a powerful way to boost our social impact while promoting a positive and engaged workforce. By encouraging employee volunteering, Datagraphic strengthens its culture of giving and makes a meaningful difference in the community. Our commitment to corporate volunteering reflects our broader dedication to social responsibility and underscores the values that drive our business forward.
