CapitaLand is a strong advocate of staff volunteerism. CapitaLand organises a series of volunteer programmes to interact with vulnerable children and elderly supported by CapitaLand Hope Foundation (CHF) and staff volunteer their time and skills to facilitate the activities.
CapitaLand is the first company in Singapore to formalise a three-day Volunteer Service Leave system and expand its leave policy to include Volunteer No Pay Leave and Volunteer Part-Time Leave in May 2006. To further promote the spirit of volunteerism, CapitaLand recognises volunteer service rendered by staff beyond office hours.
CapitaLand staff volunteered more than 170,000 hours in Asia and beyond from 2007 to 2019. In 2019, more than 2,100 CapitaLand staff volunteered over 16,700 hours1.
As part of CapitaLand's efforts to recognise and acknowledge staff's social contribution as volunteers for charitable and green-related causes, CHF will make a donation to a registered Singapore/ China-based children's charity of the staff's choice if the staff has taken all three days of Volunteer Service Leave within the year.
