CA Technologies has kicked off its annual CA Together in Action employee volunteer initiative.
The initiative will see CA employees in Australia and around the globe take time out of their workday to give back by participating in community-based, environmentally-focused projects that include Cooking for a Cause with OzHarvest, a bush regeneration day with Ryde Council and a clothing donation drive for Dress for Success.
CA Technologies A/NZ senior vice-president, Hope Powers, said since the CA Together in Action initiative launched in 2005, more than 55,000 employee volunteer hours have been contributed and more than 1100 projects have been completed.
CA employees are encouraged to use up to three workdays annually to volunteer for company-sponsored activities of their choice. In addition, each fiscal year, CA matches employees’ personal charitable contributions of up to $5000.
“We are excited to be celebrating the 11th anniversary of CA Together in Action. Participation continues to grow each year, with CA volunteers continuing to demonstrate a true commitment to serving the communities in which they live and work,” Powers said.
Globally, CA Together in Action projects will be held throughout the US, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, Spain, and the UK.
