Corporate Social Responsibility Advocate Graebel Company Sets Into Motion Initiative for Employee Community Volunteer To Impact Quality of Life
(Aurora, COLO USA) –Yesterday, during a worldwide employee town hall meeting, Mary Stoik Dymond SPHR, CCP, GRP, HCS, senior vice president of talent at Graebel Companies, Inc., announced the launch of a voluntary paid time off (VPTO) program. The global relocation company’s employees were reminded why the firm considers community service important to work-life balance; and, everyone was encouraged to focus their efforts with recognized non-profit organizations that help at-risk youth or environmental programs in their communities. The Graebel VPTO program will pay an employee up to 24-hours (three days) per calendar year for volunteered time during the work week. This marked the first of numerous global initiatives that the Graebel Companies will announce as it embarks on a new global era of its growth, expansion, and its mission to become the recognized Employer and Supplier of Choice in the relocation industry.
The VPTO benefit is a component of the corporate social responsibility (CSR) program that Graebel molded after the United Nations’ model, and adopted in 2009.
Stoik Dymond stated, “We want to encourage our employees to support their communities through volunteer work. Graebel teams of volunteers will support philanthropic work to sustain the environment and cultivate our youth, core key elements in our CSR program. Wherever our people live and work, it is our hope that this VPTO program will help them pursue philanthropic activities of their choice individually; and, as a team or both. We are very proud of their dedication to serve their communities, and we are pleased to reward them for their personal contributions with this benefit.”
For decades, the Graebel organization has actively supported philanthropic endeavors, sponsored charitable events, and has encouraged volunteerism. To view a short video that shares a sampling of the 2014 Graebel Relocation CSR activities visit this link: http://youtu.be/nCPPLR9ZPQ0.
