Economic Impact Report For Volunteers of the F1 Grand Prix 2012 (Abu Dhabi)

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

Volunteerism has long been associated with economic effectiveness and social cohesion. The advent of volunteer labour has allowed many organisations to sustain and expand the quality of their services with limited additional budgetary pressure. Those who offer their services are often rewarded with increased skills, experiences, health and cultural awareness. Society benefits from volunteering practices through enhanced understanding, civic pride and international reputationbuilding.Economies can be strengthened in a multitude of ways through the availability of low costlabour, yet with an output comparable with remunerated employees. That said in many parts of the world, the practice of volunteering is often misunderstood and undervalued by policy makers and large proportions of society.
