The act of giving back is built into our business and naturally it’s in our DNA. Through our 1-1-1 model – we’ve been able to provide 1% of our profit, 1% of our time and 1% of our product to charities, not-for-profits and initiatives to help improve the communities in which we live and work.
Our employees are encouraged to take up to seven days or 56 hours a year to volunteer and some of the charities we work with regularly here include: Halogen Foundation, Waterways, Asian Women’s Welfare Association, TOUCH Seniors, AWWA Seniors, and Food Bank Singapore.
We’ve seen that giving back allows our employees to have a greater purpose in their jobs – and because much of the volunteering and fundraising that we do is done together, we become closer as a team.
One of our largest employee-led team events in Singapore is the CloudRun. At this annual all-employee fundraising event, we attempt to run 5km to help raise money for various charities across Singapore. This year marked our 10th year running this event and it was our biggest and most successful one yet. An incredible $67,500+ SGD was raised by over 450 registered employees. Along with money raised for charities, our team was able to engage in healthy competition on the tracks, and have a lot of fun in the process!
