Engaged Employees

Our employees are committed to their local communities, leveraging their expertise and time to have a remarkable impact

Making possibilities real in the community

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 2019 more than 193 Australian employees volunteered 500 hours to help  vulnerable members of the community by supporting charitable partners like Barnardos Australia, the Children’s Cancer Institute, the Ronald McDonald House, the Salvation Army, Foodbank NSW &ACT, Lisa Harnum Foundation and Share the Dignity.

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.
