We encourage all our employees to volunteer for charitable projects. Together with selected partner organizations we address social issues in all the regions in which we operate.
By giving employees the opportunity to dedicate an entire working day on full pay to assist with charitable projects we enhance the value of our financial contributions and actively help to tackle social challenges. Credit Suisse is convinced that employee volunteering creates mutual benefits. By participating in the projects run by our partner organizations, we can gain a better insight into the needs of the people in the communities in which we live and work and build mutual trust. At the same time, these activities further enhance the interpersonal skills of our people and promote team spirit – ultimately strengthening our corporate culture.
In 2013, employees in all our regions volunteered a total of 185,764 hours. Our aim in 2014 is to encourage even more of our workforce to act as volunteers in all business regions and to further improve cooperation with our partner organizations.
