You work part time. How much flexibility do you need? By far the most people who participate in this sort of cynical nonsense do it in their own time at weekends and are coerced into it. As for the UK legislation it all doesn’t apply here. 

I haven't seen any coercion to do it in employees' own time by my current employer or previous employers.

I know the UK legislation doesn't apply here, but I was giving context for Halifax and also hoped that the IOM would either voluntarily follow the same route, or legislate.  TBH, a lot of the bigger private sector employers here will be part of a group that will have adopted these policies at group level anyway.

Sorry but that's absolute bollocks.

To you maybe who seems to have been programmed by the bank you work for to believe you’re achieving something for mankind over and above selling banking services to people who need banking services.

I value being given time by my employer to go and volunteer in the community. I also value giving people in my team the opportunity to do so. Many local charities are extremely grateful for this. An event last year raised thousands for local causes.

I really struggle to see what your problem is with this?

Again, it's not mandated, it's a choice. So why the hostility?

You could be with friends in your own time or down the pub enjoying yourself. I feel sorry for you trying to crawl the slippery corporate ladder by picking shit off a beach thinking you’re actually going to get somewhere.

So, which would you prefer, staff do it in their working time (at the employer's cost) or in their own time?

Whenever I see stuff like the pride cheese, I’m torn between thinking “oh that’s nice” and “oh that’s clever marketing”. It’s a bit cheesy you must  admit.

I volunteer in work time, not my own, because I am given that time, at a cost to my employer.

I enjoy my own time with my mates down the pub thank you, where I can totally switch off from work.

I've got where I want to be in my career thank you. Because my employer has given me opportunities to undertake qualifications and development (at their cost). All skills that are transferable should I want to move or find myself redundant.
