Firms that tout employee volunteer programs could have a leg up when it comes to recruiting young CPAs.

According to the 2007 Volunteer IMPACT survey by Deloitte & Touche USA LLP, 62% of Generation Y employees said they would prefer to work for companies that give them opportunities to contribute their talents to nonprofit organizations, but only 26% said their company mentioned volunteering during recruitment.

Moreover, 80% of the survey respondents identified themselves as volunteers, and 97% believed companies should offer employees opportunities to volunteer their work-related skills to nonprofits.
