“Giving Back” feels good and does good. We encourage our clients to work with charities and give their teams paid time off to volunteer as there are huge benefits in doing so, such as increased employee loyalty and employee engagement, which ultimately leads to better business results!
At Meraki HR, we practice what we preach, and we believe in giving back to our community. We have worked with a number of charities and have made significant donations, held fundraising events for our chosen charities and have worked with charities who we felt needed out HR and Coaching support on a pro bono basis.
Our chosen charity this year was the African Children’s Fund. Emma was so moved after hearing a talk by Tamsyn Wymer of African Children’s Fund, that we agreed to donate 1% of our Gross Profits to them. African Children’s Fund was founded in 2006 by Dee and Peter Tyrer to support local initiatives to benefit disadvantaged children. The projects they support are run by local staff who are committed to and know the needs of their own communities. Africa’s children need an education if Africa is to prosper. African Children’s Fund focus on giving children what they need to get an education, which in turn gives them hope for a bright future.
Other charities we have worked with have included; Ahoy, Cancer Research and The Safety Centre.
