Abstract
In crisis situations volunteers provide support. In many countries well established is their affiliation to crisis management organisations, but in addition unaffiliated, spontaneous volunteers are coming on site and offer their help. Facing a continuous declining willingness of volunteers to get involved for a long period, as observed for some time in Germany, improving volunteer management in crisis response is considered crucial when addressing crisis management as a whole. Also the corporate sector plays an increasingly important role in volunteer management by supporting crisis management with financial, material and personnel resources. This role includes both, the corporate social responsibility aspects of companies being civil society actors, and more specifically the role of companies being employers of privately engaged volunteers. There is a suggestion for improved inter-organisational cooperation, starting from specific projects, with synergetic effects for the companies, the response organisations and the volunteers themselves.
