Employee volunteering program - Work to Give
Our employees’ extend their time and skills to deepen our reach and enrich our engagement with all the communities we operate in.
We support 27 Non-Government-Organizations (NGO) partners globally through this initiative. When the resources available are scarce, or the required skill are unavailable within the capabilities of the NGO, our employees reach out to address the need by volunteering their time and effort. Employees also take initiative to identify projects that can benefit through our volunteering program. Employees from across locations in Jamaica, Philippines, US, Canada and India volunteer to support the development of local communities. This approach to employee engagement is in line with our approach of – ‘think global, act local’.
With around 30 volunteering events, we average over 1,000 volunteer engagement per month across all our geographies. So far over 23,000 volunteers globally have contributed more than 63,000 volunteering hours. We have the potential to positively impact around 100,000 lives annually and efforts are on to scale this up.
