As part of AGL's corporate citizenship program, Energy For Life, we provide paid workdays for employees to volunteer their time and skills to a community group or cause of their choice.
As explained by Marg Mitchell our manager corporate responsibility in this article published on Pro Bono Australia, corporate volunteering is about delivering genuine social outcomes for the communities in which our people live and work as well as making an important contribution within AGL in engaging employees, encouraging teamwork and developing leadership skills.
“Our people are genuinely surprised and overwhelmed by what they can achieve in a day and the positive impact,” explains Marg.
“As well as delivering social outcomes for the community, volunteering provides business benefits to AGL by engaging employees, promoting teamwork and building morale.”
“It opens their eyes. Charity workers inspire us and teach us about passion, empathy and support – life skills that we all need when engaging with our customers, fellow employees and our community,” she says.
