SuiteVolunteers, the company’s signature pro bono program has been moving along at full steam this year – providing opportunities for our employees to provide technical and professional skills to the NetSuite.org grantees (organizations using NetSuite through our donation program). In Q3, we’ve embarked on 28 projects ranging from simple implementations of a business process on the NetSuite platform, to outbound marketing campaign strategies.
Since January of 2013, the SuiteVolunteers program has run in the first three quarters of each year, engaging over 400 employee volunteers from 16 global offices in more than 150 projects for our grantees. As the Director of Corporate Citizenship, I have the privilege of leading a team that is the conduit between our incredible employee resources and our inspirational grantees. We are constantly in awe of the dedication and determination that these probono teams show for the process and their projects.
It was a surprise and an honor to have our program singled out and given an All-Star of Service Award at the Points of Light and A Billion+Change 2014 Conference on Volunteering and Service. The award honored our creative and comprehensive initiative and our overall engagement in the Billion+Change program.
We are pleased to dedicate the award to the volunteers and grantees who participated in the 150+ projects we’ve completed thus far. Without them, this program would not be possible.
For the Q3 2014 program, these grantee organizations include:
1. AyurVAID Hospitals
2. ABS-CBN Foundation
3. Ashoka Chile
4. Ashoka Indonesia
5. Ashoka Sahel
