At Nationwide, associates are encouraged to follow their personal passions for important charities and causes. They can log their personal volunteer hours and be rewarded with paid time off, a grant to their nonprofit and the chance to be named Volunteer of the Year. Associates also volunteer as teams during workday hours to give back, and Nationwide leaders at all levels of the business pitch in, lending their expertise and skills to worthy causes.
