The hours add up to 100,000.
Northumbrian Water Group (NWG) is proud to give something back to the communities we serve and our employee volunteering programme ′Just an hour′ has just reached a commendable milestone.
Our employees don’t just go the extra mile for the company – they go an extra hour to help deserving causes.
Established in 2002 to give employees the opportunity to spend at least 15 working hours a year to support community initiatives, we recently passed the 100,000 hours mark.
Every year our employees do amazing things. Some support a local charity that is important to them, teams do painting and decorating, tidy up gardens, help out at local schools, others give blood, mentor local students or share their business knowledge and expertise to support schools and charitable organisations.
In 2014 alone not only did 55% of employees volunteer 16,549 hours they supported 1,010 different organisations.
We work in partnership with a broad range of non-governmental organisations to achieve common goals that are important to our customers, the communities we serve and the environment we work in. This report summarises some of the highlights and key developments in our partnership activity.
