What is a Service Enterprise?

Organizations that excel at leveraging the skills and talents of volunteers in their core operations are known as “Service Enterprises”. These organizations are proven to be more adaptable, sustainable and capable of scaling their impact in comparison to peer organizations.

Research by the TCC Group shows that organizations operating as Service Enterprises are better led, better managed and operate at almost half the median budget as their peers. 

Check out the November 2016 Service Enterprise Initiative Outcomes Report!

  • A research-based assessment of existing organizational volunteer engagement practices
  • Up to 16 hours of team based change management training
  • Individualized coaching to address unique organizational opportunities and challenges.
