During a meeting held on June 12, 2020, representatives of the Association of Employers of FBiH presented the Charter on Business and Human Rights to representatives of trade unions and retail business owners, created through the initiative Improving Human Rights Corporate Accountability in the BiH Business Sector. The Initiative is implemented by the Institute for Youth Development KULT in cooperation with the Association of Employers of FBiH and the financial support of the European Union.


Corporate volunteering is a type of social engagement planned, organized and implemented by employees, and approved and encouraged by company management. Corporate volunteering is a type of social engagement where employees of a company spend one or more workdays volunteering to improve the community, and their employers treat those days as regular workdays with full pay for employees who took part. By encouraging corporate volunteering, companies show that they’re socially responsible and interested in learning about the community they operate in. 

While volunteering itself is commonplace, corporate volunteering stories remain mostly untold. Although there are examples of corporate volunteering in BiH, there is also a lack of systematic support in developing this type of volunteering and promoting examples of good practice, which sometimes leaves companies unaware of how much they’re contributing to the development of their communities. This is why the Institute for Youth Development KULT launched volontiraj.ba, an online platform designed to offer systematic support and promote corporate volunteering.
