Employees helping communities
Employee volunteering is important to us. We encourage our people to contribute to their local communities and give them plenty of support to do so.
In Singapore we’re pleased to be able to support communities and charities. But employee volunteering isn’t purely giving to others. It helps our people to gain new experiences and skills plus, in many cases, a deeper understanding of patient needs.
The PULSE Volunteer Partnership is a skills-based volunteering initiative. Through PULSE, motivated employees are matched to a non-profit organization for three or six months full-time, contributing their skills to solve healthcare challenges at home and abroad.
Since its launch in 2009, four employees from Singapore have taken part in the PULSE programme, working full-time with non-profit organisations, leveraging their professional expertise and knowledge for the good of the organisation and society.
We launched Orange Day to give all our employees one day off each year to volunteer for a good cause. Employees across the world have supported a range of charities and projects including work in local schools, shelters for the homeless, community gardens, nursing homes and communities affected by natural disaster.
