Viacom’s year-long commitment to giving back culminates each year in Viacommunity Day, the Company’s annual day of volunteer service, during which we put on our out-of-office autoreplies, make our way to a volunteer project of our choice, and roll up our sleeves to do something good.
All around the world this past Friday, droves of Viacom employees dispersed across hundreds of volunteer sites — another year of record numbers, as participation steadily grows. This year, employees worked on everything from packing goody bags for Boston first responders, to rebuilding sites still devastated from Hurricane Sandy, and conducting mock interviews for the unemployed in need of such training.
Beyond making a difference through our collective efforts, the objective of the day is to inspire employees to get involved either with that organization or in community more generally, year-round. It also reaffirms the ongoing relationships we have with many of the participating organizations.
