Watch an overview of Symantec’s third annual Global Service Week, one dedicated week when employees volunteer at least one hour in their community.
This year, the third annual GSW, our employees have much to be proud of. Beginning October 14, more than 2,100 employees logged 9,579 volunteer hours at 138 team events across 19 countries in just one week.
This is a 54 percent increase from 2017 efforts and we have more than doubled employee volunteer hours in just three years.
Employee volunteer hours soar during third annual Global Service Week
By Jaime Barclay, Sr Mgr Corporate Responsibility
At Symantec, we know that corporate responsibility is not only the right thing to do, it is directly linked to employee retention, productivity, and overall engagement. A recent study conducted by Glassdoor found that 75 percent of employees and job seekers expect their employer to support the communities in which they do business through donations and/or volunteer efforts.

Service to our communities is part of who we are at Cisco. This core value was clearly demonstrated during our first ever Global Service Week in September. The campaign was an incredible success with nearly 5,000 employees volunteering 20,000 hours in more than 85 Cisco locations worldwide.
