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.
