The Athens Banner-Herald reports on recent research by Terry College management professor Jessica Rodell into the benefits of volunteering on employees. 

“There’s plenty of research in my field on volunteering, but there’s not a lot on corporate volunteer programs and how companies get involved in their communities,” Rodell said. "If you look at the websites of Fortune 500 companies, all of them promote what they do for the community and how they get involved, but we don’t know why they do it and there was no data on whether or not the company’s efforts made an impact on the community or what volunteering did for employees.”
