EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

EdelGive takes great pride in the volunteering culture that exists in Edelweiss. Our Employee Engagement Programme offers a structured platform that connects non-profits in need of voluntary support to the Edelweiss workforce who are inclined towards making a contribution to the social sector.

Employees are encouraged to not only donate in monetary terms but also contribute their time, skills and expertise to the non-profit organizations on a pro-bono basis. Such non-financial support involves direct interaction with the beneficiaries and requires employees to develop high quality solutions to specific organizational challenges by contributing towards capacity building projects. EdelGive also extends support to external agencies adopting similar programmes, and guides them towards integrating structured employee engagement into their organisation’s DNA.

Our success in running employee engagement programs have won Edelweiss the Leader in Employee Volunteering at the iVolunteer Awards 2017.

Highlights from 2017-18

  • EdelGive Foundation engaged Edelweiss employees in more than 40 immersion activities and in-kind donation drives in over 100 cities and 125 branches.

  • More than 6000 employees engaged through financial and non-financial giving opportunities and dedicated over 29,000 + hours of volunteering through the years.

  • More than 40 employees at senior and mid-levels were involved in skilled volunteering projects. These projects varied from building HR Manuals, MIS systems, Digitization, Cash Flow Management, Crowd sourcing campaigns, Coaching/ Mentoring of Senior Management of NGOs.

EMPLOYEES SPEAK

Swacch Bharat Abhiyaan - It was big task to clean the ground!!!

I thought it would be a time consuming task but the army of 275+ edelites made it easy! Each of us across all levels gathered together, worked hand in hand and finished the herculean task. It was great to see 275+ edelites gathered for ONE great cause!!!

Rahul Pandya

Manager CFO’s Office

We had a wonderful time conducting the Stationery Distribution Drive and interacting with 200+ students of primary and secondary sections. We recited poems together. This activity also gave an opportunity to all the team members to spend time together and bond with each other. We would surely like to be a part of more such activities in the future.

Yashashri Kulkarni

Chief Manager

It was a great experience spending time at the old age home. The residents were very receptive. We played passing the parcel, housie, Antakshari along with the residents. Some of them also danced to the tunes of Garba. It was pleasure for me able to bring smile on their faces. Overall it was a memorable evening
