Global good works

The Sun (Malaysia) - - MEDIA & MARKETING -

T Ocom­mem­o­rate the sev­enth May­bank Global CR (Cor­po­rate Re­spon­si­bil­ity) Day, over 18,000 May­bank em­ploy­ees around the globe con­vened in their re­spec­tive lo­ca­tions, vol­un­teer­ing to en­gage with the peo­ple in car­ry­ing out so­cially re­spon­si­ble and en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­ing ini­tia­tives.

TO­GETHER PRO­VID­ING SO­LU­TIONS Along the theme “En­abling Com­mu­ni­ties with So­lu­tions”, the an­nual en­deav­our which is part of the bank­ing group’s em­ployee vol­un­teerism pro­gramme is be­lieved to be the sin­gle largest com­mu­nity pro­gramme un­der­taken si­mul­ta­ne­ously in one day, on a global scale and by a Malaysian­based cor­po­ra­tion. May­bank em­ploy­ees right up to New York, Lon­don, Greater China, as well as all across the Asean coun­tries gath­ered to reaf­firm their com­mit­ment to social and com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment.

The May­bankers were re­ported to have gone down on their hands and knees car­ry­ing out the 90 sus­tain­able CR ini­tia­tives im­ple­mented, which in­volved spe­cial chil­dren, the el­derly, the phys­i­cally-chal­lenged, sin­gle moth­ers, or­phans, as well as the en­vi­ron­ment.

LO­CAL SCENE In Kuala Lumpur, May­bank chair­man Tan Sri Me­gat Za­harud­din Me­gat Mohd Nor took part in a fun run and walk with Down’s Syn­drome chil­dren to raise funds for spe­cial needs stu­dents and chil­dren with cancer. May­bank group pres­i­dent and CEO Datuk Ab­dul Farid Alias was seen with em­ploy­ees help­ing to raise funds and spread aware­ness at a Na­tional Autism So­ci­ety of Malaysia (Na­som) com­mu­nity event.

BIG­GER IM­PACT Said the bank’s group chief hu­man cap­i­tal of­fi­cer Nora Manaf: “Global CR Day is a unique vol­un­teerism event where em­ploy­ees re­in­formce May­bank’s mis­sion of hu­man­is­ing its fi­nan­cial ser­vices and its com­mit­ment to be at the heart of the com­mu­nity, sus­tain­ably.”

Be­liev­ing that the so­lu­tions May­bankers brought to the ta­ble through the ini­tia­tives will surely ben­e­fit present and fu­ture com­mu­ni­ties, Nora also felt that with the prin­ci­ple of “Pay­ing it For­ward” weaved into the ac­tiv­i­ties, the im­pact will go far­ther on the sus­tain­abil­ity front.
