MEMBER SPOTLIGHT – GOOD360 AUSTRALIA
Good360 Australia matches businesses and individual donors to charities and Not-For-Profits, and redistributes excess non-perishable goods that range from high quality office furniture and stationery, to linen and designer shoes. They call it the Circle of Good.
But there is actually a fourth win in the scenario, and that is for the many volunteers that support them.
Volunteers feature at all levels at Good360. From the Board of Directors and Advisory Panel plus corporate volunteers who help out with the support of their employers, the volunteers come from all sectors and all stages of life.
They have interns and students who are studying and looking for experience and recent graduates who need to improve their interpersonal and communication skills. Experienced professionals also volunteer: some are between jobs, taking time out, or changing pace after a successful career in the corporate world.
Hongmin Lu, Good360 volunteer for over 12 months and an invaluable team member, was the deserving winner of The Centre for Volunteering’s 2015 Sydney City East Student Volunteer of the Year . Well respected for her impeccable organisational skills combined with fantastic work ethic and exceptional team work skills, Hongmin is the ‘go to’ person if you want something done in the Good360 head office. A dream employee for any team, and even more amazing when you consider Hongmin is a volunteer.
The return on investment in volunteers is not just about Good360. Their volunteers also benefit in the spirit of the Circle of Good. They are as well trained and supported to achieve their goals as any paid employee would be.
Volunteers are an integral part of the Good360 team and together they #DoGoodBetter.
