Courts Cel­e­brates Vol­un­teer Week 2016

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Em­ploy­ees of Saint Lucia’s lead­ing re­tailer of the world’s best brands in elec­tron­ics and fur­ni­ture prod­ucts, Courts, made time to vol­un­teer their time and skills as part of ac­tiv­i­ties sur­round­ing the com­pany’s ‘Vol­un­teer Week 2016’.

The ini­tia­tive, which was held for the first time by the su­per­store, was launched with the pri­mary ob­jec­tive of mo­bi­liz­ing staff in ev­ery country where Courts op­er­ates. While the com­pany is known and ap­pre­ci­ated for its com­mit­ment to con­tinue bring­ing value home, Courts sees this ini­tia­tive as an av­enue to strengthen re­la­tion­ships within the com­mu­ni­ties, im­prove em­ployee com­mit­ment and re­ten­tion as well as to re­in­force the com­pany’s cor­po­rate im­age.

The Gor­don and Wal­cott Me­mo­rial School, Mar­ian Home and Com­fort Bay Home were the three in­sti­tu­tions se­lected by the com­pany for ‘Vol­un­teer Week 2016’. The vol­un­teers, who in­cluded Uni­comer em­ploy­ees, teach­ers and par­ents from the school, as well as mem­bers of the com­mu­nity, worked hand in hand to com­plete the se­lected projects.

At the Gor­don and Wal­cott Me­mo­rial School the vol­un­teers re­fur­bished, re­painted and pres­sure-washed var­i­ous sec­tions to beau­tify the school.

The res­i­dents of the Mar­ian Home and Com­fort Bay Home were treated to man­i­cures and pedi­cures among other spe­cial ac­tiv­i­ties sched­uled for the day by the vol­un­teers.

‘Vol­un­teer Week 2016’ en­abled em­ploy­ees to use their time to ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity. This ini­tia­tive co­in­cided with the busi­ness’s strate­gic com­mit­ment to work­place vol­un­teerism and civic en­gage­ment by of­fer­ing out­stand­ing ser­vices and pro­grammes.

The man­age­ment and staff of Uni­comer (Saint Lucia) Limited, trad­ing as Courts, would like to ex­tend sin­cere grat­i­tude to the prin­ci­pal and staff of the Gor­don and Wal­cott Me­mo­rial School, par­ents and vol­un­teers as well as the man­age­ment and res­i­dents of the Mar­ian and Com­fort Bay Homes. The com­pany ex­tends fur­ther grat­i­tude to em­ploy­ees who vol­un­teered their time and skill in cel­e­bra­tion of ‘Vol­un­teer Week 2016’.
