Employees in our NYC offices received a chocolaty afternoon treat yesterday courtesy of Insomnia Cookies to celebrate the release of our annual social responsibility report, ““Viacommunity 2014 Review: Impact Creating Value.” The report showcases Viacom’s investment in some of today’s most pressing issues, and our work to inspire and activate our diverse audiences to bring about positive social change.

While our NY employees may have been the ones to indulge their sweet tooth, the report celebrates the work of all our employees worldwide in communities local and global.

Here are some of the highlights: Read More

Carson Smith, Human Resources manager at the Nickelodeon animation studio and recipient of one of the two 2014 Viacommunity Awards, started mentoring and community outreach programs for children throughout Burbank. Tessa Jordan, director of content and brand management at Nickelodeon International, received the other award for her work with Achilles International, supporting people with disabilities in athletics. Each received $10,000 toward their causes.

Our company is filled with people whose spirit of citizenship and teamwork is striking, both in their commitment to local communities and to their community of peers at Viacom. It’s only fitting that at our Viacom Town Hall, a discussion on all things related to our company community, we recognize employees who have demonstrated an extraordinary spirit of Viacommunity.

Last week, Viacom and its employees put the giving back in Thanksgiving during Viacommunity’s Week of Giving.  At Viacom’s New York headquarters, employees rallied with Lifebeat, a nonprofit dedicated to educating America’s youth about HIV/AIDS prevention, to assemble 2,300 condom packs.  The packs contained HIV prevention materials and information and were distributed by Lifebeat at #MusicFightsAIDS, a benefit concert featuring superstar DJs A-Trak, Fedde Le Grand, Dirty South, 3LAU, and Tritional, amongst others.  Employees also lent their creative talents to DOROT, a New York organization that works to alleviate the social isolation among the elderly, by crafting handmade holiday cards.  Lastly, Viacom’s New York employees took to the streets and braved the rain and snow by volunteering with Citymeals-on-Wheels, an organization that aims to ensure no homebound elderly New Yorker will ever go a day without food or human company.   Employee volunteers broke up into groups of twos and threes and went door to door in the Upper East Side, delivering warm meals and Thanksgiving baskets to around 70 homebound seniors.
