@Tricia. Actually, I didn't think about people who do charity work during their workday (except where the company allots time for it). Right, penality points for the ones who devote their work days to unsanctioned charity work (or in one case I recall, writing a sports book). I was thinking of the people who are active in the community on their own time.

Am I good witch or a bad witch?

You bring up some good points.  You asked if charitable work should be considered a bonus?

I have worked with people who basically spent half of their time working for an outside organization.  This one lady in particular worked with the Girl Scouts of America. It was hard to schedule meetings with her because she had  "Girl Scout calls" and she was constantly using the copier/printer for those activities.

So ... I might deduct points for that activity.  :-)

But I'm really just furthering your point - not all managers are going to see things the same way.  If you are running a Sales organization - maybe the volunteer organization is a great way to meet people who want to buy your product.  So who cares if we have to spend a day a week helping them out?

That's the problem with the data - I don't know how it's going to be used and what criteria is being applied.
