SPE’s HR department has announced some great news at the All Hands meeting which was held virtually, last week.
A new volunteer policy has been introduced, as part of SPE’s CSR program. The new volunteer policy, encourages the employees of Polarity Technologies, Spigot and Eightpoint to become involved in their communities, lending their voluntary support to programs that positively impact the society.
More specifically, employees can take up to 8 hours of paid time off every fiscal year half (Jan 1 thru Jun 30 and Jul 1 thru Dec 31) to participate in the volunteer programs of their choice.
According to Benefacto, “An effective volunteering program can add another angle to a well-rounded workplace, enabling employees to pursue their own social interests whilst collectively increasing the contribution a company gives to the community. Studies also show that modern young professionals hold companies “giving back” in high regard when choosing an employer.”
