Employees volunteer over 5,800 hours
AGL’s ‘Employee Volunteering’ program gives all employees the opportunity to take one day of paid volunteering leave each year to support community causes and charitable organisations.
As well as delivering social outcomes for the community, volunteering provides business benefits to AGL – by engaging employees, promoting teamwork and building morale.
AGL provides the flexibility for employees to take volunteering leave in a variety of ways, including team projects, pursuing individual interests and participating in AGL-led initiatives. In FY2014, volunteering activities ranged from providing skill based volunteering in the form of compliance advice to our charity partners, as well as providing education on home energy efficiency. Our employees have also prepared food for the homeless, assisted at crisis support facilities, and planted over 1,500 trees at the Werribee Zoo.
