Bringing our purpose to life for great causes around the world
Around the world, our employees are passionate about giving time, energy and money to worthwhile causes that empower their local communities — it's just another way we live out our purpose of powering people and organisations to fulfil their unique potential. Our annual Global Charity Day was started in 2012 to give staff from across the Group an outlet for their creativity, athleticism and passion to raise as much money as possible for chosen local and regional charities.
Feeding our neighbours in need
Staff from across Germany volunteered with Tafel Deutschland, a charity working to reduce food waste by collecting and distributing surplus food to people in need.
Fired up for charity
The Robert Walters team in Johannesburg put on a barbecue feast to raise funds for Door of Hope, a local charity that works to rescue abandoned infants in South Africa.
Creating brighter futures
In Malaysia, team members donated their time to paint and repair Pertubuhan Pusat Kebajikan Destiny, a local welfare centre working with underprivileged children and adults.
Doing our part for survivors
Our Wellington office put their athleticism to the test in a series of Survivor-style challenges as they raised money for Help, a New Zealand charity that supports survivors of sexual abuse.
Getting messy for a good cause
By making donations to Cancer Research UK, employees in our UK offices vied for a chance to plant a cream pie on the face of their managing directors.
Stopping litter in its tracks
Our teams in Belgium helped to beautify their local communities by litter-picking in support of 4ocean, a global environmental movement committed to cleaning oceans worldwide.
