Corporate Citizenship

    

Veritas strives to create a positive social impact on communities around the globe. One of our three Corporate Responsibility pillars is Corporate Citizenship, which includes philanthropy, employee activism and engagement, and a commitment to human rights, education, and driving social change.

Veritas matches employee dollars and time volunteered

Veritas offers a Matching Gifts programme to all employees globally. Through this programme, Veritas makes a dollar-for-dollar match of all employee donations to non-profit organisations meeting Veritas' general requirements for charitable donations. Veritas matches up to $1,000 per employee and $5,000 per VP and above per calendar year.

Along with the Matching Gifts programme, employees are invited to take advantage of the Dollars-for-Doers initiative, through which Veritas makes a $15 donation for every hour of volunteer service that an employee contributes. From October 2015 to September 2016, Veritas donated nearly US$50k to charities around the world.

Between October 2015 and September 2016, Veritas matched employee donations and time volunteered for a total amount of over US$440k.

Giving at Veritas Empowered

Our GIVE (Giving at Veritas Empowered) employee resource group fosters Veritas' corporate citizen culture. GIVE teams develop relationships with communities where Veritas operates, and raise awareness among Veritas employees for causes that are important to employees and local communities.


Givebacks at corporate events

Veritas seeks opportunities to give back to the community in everything that we do. We include giveback events in our external and internal corporate events. For example, in October 2016, over 150 leaders from our consulting services and support team came together for a three-day conference, where a half-day was spent volunteering for Enable Community Foundation. Employees teamed up to build prosthetic hands from 3D printed components to donate to children with limb loss.

Veritas committed to supporting SDGs

In line with our Corporate Citizenship pillar and strong ties with communities where we operate, Veritas supports the following Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
