"Getting on Board is an excellent initiative, and the Institute of Directors fully supports it objectives. Board-level volunteering is a cost-effective way of developing leadership skills, specially of middle and senior manager, the directors of the future. Companies that encourage board-level volunteering are more likely to become ‘Employers of choice’, and it is also a simple way for companies to meet their CR goals".
