Skills-based Volunteering

Through Nest’s Employee Engagement Program, pioneering companies can engage employees in giving back meaningfully while building teamwork and furthering CSR commitments. Nest is working with companies and foundations like Kering Foundation to develop customized volunteer projects that leverage employee’s unique skill sets as a means to give guidance and mentorship to artisan businesses struggling with specific challenges. These curated volunteer projects can take place from an employee’s desk or include exciting short-term travel around the world.
