We started our structured volunteering programmes in 2012, and since then our partners at Secure have volunteered over ___ hours to the community. Through this time, we’ve been able to plant ____ trees and run ____ sessions with kids in Udaipur.
This community impact is powerful, especially when we see the personal and business benefits that it has brought. Over 75% of volunteers felt that volunteering significantly increased their commitment to the Secure brand and 86% felt that the skills they learnt whilst volunteering helped them at work.
In the words of the Ananya Singhal (Chief- Services, People, Communications and Infrastructure)
“We mandate community engagement as a part of what we do as an organization. It’s an inherent part of our existence, the same way we mandate financial good practice and high-quality manufacturing, design and everything else. It has the part of the same arc and therefore mandating working in society is incredibly useful… it creates a connection of the team with the community and given that our products and services are used in the community.
I’m sure it will also be giving insights to our people in terms of other viewpoints, so the business sees an immense benefit not just in terms of knowledge about community but a sense of wellbeing which is important and that then again feeds into our culture, a sense of change in possible. So, all of these things are incredibly positive drivers for us.
