Globe Telecom is calling on various organizations and volunteers to join its nationwide volunteer program slated to launch this month to promote sharing an act of kindness among Filipinos and collectively contribute to social development.
Globe Chief Sustainability Officer Yoly Crisanto said, “We are reaching out to individuals, communities and companies to help create a “Globe of Good” thru the program.”
“Studies have shown that company volunteerism is a great tool for employee engagement. Over 90% of employees who volunteer are happier with their employers while majority of those who are proud of their company’s contributions to society are engaged at work. Our program aspires to bring families, friends, and co-workers to form a unique culture of kindness,” she added.
Globe partnered with Future Maker iVolunteer Philippines to provide the volunteer sign-up platform through any device with internet access. Individuals can sign up or register for free provided groups are formed comprised of two to four volunteers to join the activities.
Companies with no existing volunteer programs will find it easy to look for various opportunities to match the needs of its employees. On the other hand, companies with existing volunteer programs may also register to get their volunteer hours counted for a chance to win exciting prizes.
“Everyone has an opportunity to volunteer. We encourage our fellow Filipinos especially our customers to share their time, talent or treasure for a good cause,” Crisanto said. Individuals and groups who wish to volunteer can visit facebook.com/GlobeBridgeCom.
In 2017, the Philippines ranked 7th in the world out of 139 countries with the highest number of people volunteering their time based on the Charities Aid Foundation World Giving Index. The report said 25 million Filipinos volunteered in 2016.
