Our colleagues are central to the success of our social investment activities. We provide five days of paid volunteering leave to all Pfizer colleagues and we actively encourage participation individually or as a team. We match colleague fundraising activities, participate in national events such as Comic Relief and we offer payroll-giving matching for colleagues who wish to donate to charities that they care about.
Pfizer colleagues donated almost 3000 hours of their time to a range of charitable organisations during 2015, a significant increase on the previous year.
We will continue to actively promote and empower colleagues to volunteer time and skills; we recognise the benefit this has for participants and recipient organisations.
All our sites run a Christmas Giving programme, including 'drop-offs' for seasonal food donations and financial support to help foodbanks with their Christmas programme.
