Staff Working Group
June - November 2011
Staff Working Group scheme has been re-launched in 2011. This programme is a chance for HSBC staff to show their creativeness, passion, and enthusiasm for the environment, education, and community through their own corporate sustainability projects.
In 2010, the Staff Working Group scheme was extremely successful: 10 projects from thirteen various departments were funded; a total of US$42,045 was spent and more than 437 staff and 108 non-staff participants contributed 7,300hours to benefit more than 1,206,713 people.
The Staff Working Group 2011 has received an extremely encouraging response. A total of 29 proposals were submitted from various departments. After having a careful look at each project, the Corporate Sustainability Steering Committee has selected 12 projects for funding based on their promise to yield the most in terms of educational, community and environmental benefits.
The projects selected to execute include: Classroom Construction for Binh Thoi primary school; Build the Hand-operated Water Pump and Rain Water Conservation System for poor people in Bac Giang province, Environment Training for children: Environmental Protection Training to Young Learners at British Council, Health Check & Hygiene Training in Ben Tre, Financial Literacy for Young Women: Personal Finance Management and Job Interview Skills, Train Survival Skills for Children, Computer Literacy for Children...
