CBS launches employee volunteering scheme
On Monday 29th April, CBS officially launched the My Make a Difference Day Scheme for all of its employees.
The programme allows CBS’ people to take part in a wide-range of volunteering activities with local partner charities. Employees can choose to take one calendar day a year away from the business to complete their chosen activity, or split it over two half-days.
The aim of the initiative is to provide participants with the opportunity to work in partnership with the local community to gain an educational experience, which they will be able to reflect upon.
CBS welcomed five local charities to its Head Offices at The Barracks, in Bury, to launch the scheme. The charities presented to the company’s 140 employees before manning stands where they discussed the options available, answered questions and handed out information.
Nicky Dickinson, Head of People, Culture and Values said of the event;
“The day was extremely thought provoking, full of positivity and we were all privileged to hear the presentations of each of our partner charities and find out more about volunteering opportunities.
“CBS is committed to working in partnership with all of the charities now and in the future, not solely through volunteering, but through fundraising and practical support.
“Every person at CBS now has the opportunity to give something back to our local community.”
