The Value of our Time
We’re joining the global movement of companies who pledge to give back 1% equity, 1% profit and 1% employee’s time to charities and communities in need. For our company, that’s six days of our employee’s time each year working with not-
for-profits of their choice. It might be tree planting or working with the homeless or helping in a hospital.
We work directly with many not-for-profits and witness first hand the great work they do. We understand how worthwhile volunteer work is so we’re making it official.
The Salesforce Foundation which promotes integrated philanthropy has held the 1% Pledge for 18 years and actively promotes associated companies and clients to do likewise.
“Salesforce is dedicated to changing the way companies think about corporate philanthropy,” said Suzanne DiBianca, EVP of corporate relations and chief philanthropy officer, Salesforce. “Today, we’re excited that AAkonsult is joining us in giving their resources back to the community. This is another great example of the power that business has to create change in our communities.”
