HSBC Team Trackers Programme Winners

May 27, 2017

HSBC globally provides hundreds of volunteering opportunities in youth education and environmental projects, and as part of HSBC Bermuda’s ‘personal volunteering’ initiative the bank has engaged with The Centre on Philanthropy’s ‘Volunteer Team Tracker Programme’.

The programme’s on-line tracking tool enables members of our local community including bank employees, the ability to search for volunteer opportunities across 150 registered Bermuda charities. Volunteers can sign up and create a ‘volunteer profile’, volunteer with their chosen charity and then log their hours.

Currently, over 50 HSBC staff members are registered with the programme and have collectively logged almost 3,000 volunteer hours since the programme’s implementation in 2006. The top volunteers in the bank are awarded funds for their chosen registered charity.

William Luu, HSBC Bermuda’s top volunteer reflects, “Volunteerism is the currency and capital that enriches not just the holder, but the community it resides and is spent in. When we all do a little something to help change the community, we help evolve the very fabric of our society. Giving back has become a passion for me in order to drive the change I want to see in the world, and HSBC helps to support that vision.”

HSBC Bermuda’s CEO Mark Watkinson said, “I am extremely proud of our many employees who continue to give back to our community through volunteering. HSBC Bermuda understands the importance of the employees’ volunteering efforts and will continue to support them so that they have the time to focus on important causes, from which Bermuda can only benefit.”

Jenice Germain, Volunteer and Engagement Coordinator at The Centre on Philanthropy shared this with us, “The Centre on Philanthropy congratulates HSBC Bermuda employee volunteers for positively impacting our community!

“Volunteers are a life-line to non-profit organisations, and one of the most important resources they have. The contributions made by HSBC employee volunteers are invaluable to the work of the charities they serve. Their donation of time, energy, and talent is inspiring and enhances the community in which we live in a tangible way.”
