See What You Can Do With 80,000 Volunteer Hours

Remote employees are a multiplier of good in their communities, volunteering with kids, food banks, and the elderly. Here’s how to visualize one workforce’s efforts.

Data Dive

Companies that care about social issues and their societal impact often give employees time off during the year for volunteer work. Tanium, the publisher of Endpoint, gives each of its 2,000 employees five paid days to perform important services, such as caring for kids, delivering meals to the elderly, and picking up litter from hiking and biking trails.

A remote workforce is good for communities. As more people take jobs far from their corporate HQs, more of their local communities are benefiting. And so are these otherwise homebound workers.

Studies show that volunteering improves our physical and mental health, teaches valuable skills, and reduces anxiety. It also increases confidence, offers leadership opportunities, and creates valuable team-building skills.

Tanium’s volunteer efforts equal 80,000 hours. For fun, we wondered: What else could you do with that time?
