Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to launch the ‘#Self4Society’ mobile application on October 24 in New Delhi, according to a report by The Hindu. The app, developed by MyGov, will help coordinate volunteer work undertaken by professionals.
This platform will help to create better synergies among so many CSR and other initiatives and lead to a much better outcome of the efforts of professionals.
Companies have observed that a spirit of service and volunteering improves employee satisfaction and reduces employee attrition.
The app will have incentives, gamification and intra- and inter-company competitions, and social networking.
The volunteer time for the government’s flagship programmes such as Swachh Bharat is expected to increase.
