The Global Day of Service this year was a rewarding and meaningful experience with the involvement of Chubb volunteers visiting a selected home to support local communities.
The event was made extra special with the participation of 11 branch offices and the extension of the Day of Service to a three-day event at the head office. The participation of 11 branches took place during the week where a few branches teamed up to work on bigger projects.
At the head office in Kuala Lumpur, waste paper materials were collected via a Recycling Drive and RM7,750 was raised at the Charity Bazaar, whereby all proceeds were donated to the selected Home – the Ti-Ratana Welfare Society. With a one-to-one match pledge made by Chubb, a total sum of RM15,500 was raised and donated to the home.
This initiative ended with a volunteering exercise whereby 107 Chubb employees participated in various activities to enhance the living conditions at the home. These included spring-cleaning, wall-painting as well as spending quality time with the kids and senior citizens by engaging them in dialogue and entertaining them.
The activities also served as a platform for employees to network and create a sense of responsibility among themselves while giving back to the local community.
The 2015 Global Day of Service was the largest CSR initiative at Chubb in Malaysia with very responsive participation from its employees.
