PIMCO’s Global Week of Volunteering began in 2009 as a solution to amplify the impact of volunteer efforts of our employee’s across the word. Now, in it’s 11th year, it is a flagship PIMCO Acts initiative and has evolved from a week-long to a month-long model – engaging 50% of our employees.
During this month where we make manifest our culture of service; our colleagues, families and friends across PIMCO’s global offices help build, enhance and maintain our local communities. We look forward to collectively volunteering and giving back.
This past year’s evolution enabled 2,715+ volunteers, including PIMCO employees, family members and friends to donate ~6,685 hours of service back to the community. Since GMV’s inception 11 years ago, 50% of our global employees now participate, and with this year’s transition from a week to a month of engagement, participation rose by 32% from the prior year. Of our 167 GMV events, 38% were focused on SDG 2: Zero Hunger.
Through 167 Global Month activities, we provided meals, gardened, taught interview skills and resume writing workshops, mentored youth, cleaned up shelters, playgrounds, beaches and parks. Collectively each helped create true impact in our local communities.
