Glenmark Joy of Giving
Making a difference through the Festival of Philanthropy
Commitment to one’s work gives employees a sense of purpose, and we are learning that an excellent conduit to this feeling is involvement in a cause. Volunteering not only makes a difference in the lives of the beneficiaries but also brings a huge transformation in the volunteer himself/herself. Our CSR efforts are supplemented further through the cooperation of our employees who are involved in different activities like: health camps, rallies, shramdaan, organizing competitions and conducting sessions to create awareness on health, nutrition and hygiene.
Over the years 3,500 employees have volunteered over 15,900 hours of community service. In 2016, employees from 32 locations in 16 countries voluntarily contributed either financially or in kind to a selected cause through the Joy of Giving - Festival of Philanthropy.
Healthy children are the foundation of a healthier world. With this belief, we have initiated our flagship program, which is in the area of child health and is focused on pregnant mothers and children up to the age of five.
