Lend a hand
In many Swiss Re offices around the world, we encourage Swiss Re employees to team up with their colleagues and support a worthy cause for a year or more. Employees are involved from the beginning, nominating organisations for this Charity of the Year programme, voting among the candidates and, finally, fundraising for and providing hand-on support to the winner on a Community Day.
On Community Days, Swiss Re employees from across the business join forces to make other people’s lives, and the world, a little better. Each year thousands of them choose to devote a working day to helping a local organisation by, for instance, renovating a building, working outdoors at a nature reserve, accompanying chronically ill children on an outing or packing food parcels for the needy. Participants find the experience not only meaningful but a great way to build team spirit and have fun together outside the work setting.
