Find out about how Anna has applied core knowledge and behaviours to make an impact in her role as an Enterprise Advisor
Volunteering through one of our programmes is a great way to develop and demonstrate the core knowledge and behaviour standards set out in the Map and truly live the purpose and values.
How does volunteering align to the Map?
Our core purpose
Our core purpose is championing better work and working lives. Creating roles, opportunities, organisations and working environments that help get the best out of people, delivering great organisational outcomes, in turn driving our economies, and making good, fair and inclusive work a societal outcome.
The new Profession Map won’t tell you what to do, but it will show you how being principles-led, evidence-based and outcomes-driven leads to better decisions in any situation.
Volunteering goes right to the heart of the three key principles: work matters, people matter, professionalism matters – as a volunteer you make an impact on the people you help, the wider society that they’re connected to, and the reputation and standing of the people profession. That’s not to mention the impact it will have on your own learning and development.
As a people professional, whichever impact level you’re at, you’ll be demonstrating some of the core knowledge and behaviour standards through your volunteering activities.
