Kelly in the Community
Kelly is committed to helping the community, schools and charities to invest in the people of the future. One way we give back is to support 15 children nationally through the KidsCan StandTall programme "In Our Own Backyard", where underprivileged children are support by each Kelly operation locally to ensure they can have the basic needs of shoes, clothes and food.
In addition, in lieu of staff and client gifts for Christmas 2012, we have donated a years worth of books to Blaketown School in Blaketown, West Coast in conjunction with Duffy Books. We're really pleased to be able to help the children with their reading and learning, they are our future employees and employers! In addition, with the aid of the Variety Club, we managed to ensure five netbooks purchased for charity were delivered to Blaketown School to assist them in the best possible learning environment.
As part of our dedication to giving back to the community, we introduced a new benefit to working for Kelly in New Zealand. Each permanent member of staff is allocated two days per annum to help out at the charity, school, local community support group, or fundraising event of their chosing.
This support takes place during paid employment time and each Kelly staff member can volunteer at a charity or school or community activity they wish at no cost to the institution.
So far we’ve had lots of staff take up this new benefit and here are some of the companies that we have assisted recently through either time or raising funds/donations:
- Ronald MacDonald House - Wellington
- Auckland City Mission
- Westpac Helicopter
- The Radio Network Childrens Party - Christchurch
- Breast Cancer
As a business we offer 200 working days a year back to the community in any way we can help the chosen charity or support network our staff wish to help. We look forward to many more stories of helping out this year to share with you!
