Employee Volunteering Program
Sony Mobile cares about the local communities where our offices and employees reside. Through our Employee Volunteering program, Sony Mobile aspires to contribute with our employees’ day-to-day skills to local communities as well as to create unique opportunities for our employees to be inspired.
In late 2013 Sony Mobile introduced its Employee Volunteering Program which entitles employees to take 3 paid days off work each year to participate in volunteering activities which support local/global communities. In order for the new program to be truly activated we hold volunteering fairs which introduce local volunteering opportunities at the different sites around the world.
At the volunteering fairs, our employees around the world get the opportunity to meet and start to engage in activities by various local non-profit organizations.
Our activities from 2013 to March 2015:
- 272 employees have participated in volunteering
- 7 regions (Brazil, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, Sweden, UK, USA) actively promoted the Employee Volunteering
- Approx. 378 days of our working days have been applied for employee volunteering
- Approx. 2026 hours of our working time have been applied for employee volunteering
Support biodiversity together with employees in China
At BMC, our Sony Mobile factory in Beijing, we promote biodiversity on various occasions such as on the Earth Day, the International Biodiversity Day, the World Environmental Day and so on. By cooperating with the Sony ExploraScience Museum in Beijing, we organize educational activities for young people to understand the importance of biodiversity and climate change. In 2014, through our biodiversity activity, 40 employees and their families joined the nature tour and learned about wild animals and plants as well as experienced to release rescued animals back to the nature.
