Paid Time Off for Marathon County Government Staff to Volunteer?

Marathon County Government will soon be considering a new employment policy that will allow its 700 County employees 1 paid day (8 hours) off per year to volunteer at an approved non-profit agency.

Local administrators recognize current workforce challenges and are looking for additional ways to help their staff find meaning in their work.

The proposal will be discussed at the County’s Human Resources, Finance, and Property Committee at their October 14 meeting. The public is invited to weigh in and/or attend the meeting. (Click the title for details…)
