At AbbVie we care about social causes as well as the health of our
patients. We encourage engagement in the communities where we live and
work, and that’s why each June is dedicated to the Month of
Possibilities. In 2018 more than 150 Australian employees volunteered
646 hours to help with a range of volunteering activities including
compiling 400 hampers for women in domestic violence refuges, cooking
food for children in foster care facilities, conducting working bees
for the Salvation Army and assembling solar lights for children in
developing countries who don’t have electricity.
We are a company made up of passionate people. It’s why we care
about supporting the causes that are close to the heart of our
employees. Throughout the year we participated in fundraising
activities identified by the AbbVie team that saw us climb up
mountains, go on 90km bike rides and “light the night”.
Each AbbVie employee is given two volunteering days a year to enable
them to donate their time to charitable causes.
In addition, our Employee Donation Matching program means that we
support employee fundraising, dollar for dollar.
When the business gets behind the causes that matter most to our
people it demonstrates that we are united in our commitment to make a difference.
