Corporate Volunteers Association and Volunteerism in ARGE
ARGE was instrumental in setting up the Corporate Volunteers Association to promote volunteerism in the private sector. It contributed to this initiative by providing voluntary work in planning, managing and publicising these efforts as well as developing content and methodology for dissemination. Participating companies undertake to evaluate voluntary contributions by their employees in their annual performance reviews.
ARGE also encourages all its employees to spend one paid working day a week on NGO activities in order to improve the quality of life in the community at a local, national and global level.
