Volunteering at AXA: “putting my heart in action”At AXA, all our employees share core values and deep sense of corporate and social responsibility. Employee’s personal commitment through volunteering is one of our key pillars to build a better life for all. Each year sees more and more volunteers on local community projects all over the world. Discover the story of Angela and Monica, two employees who are involved in volunteering activities with AXA Hearts in Action.
For Angela, when you volunteer at AXA Hearts in Action and help people, “it is not just them making you realize how lucky you are, you learn from them too. It makes you want to embrace life more.” Another activity she joined was held at the Tahanang Walang Hagdan to build a community among disabled members of society, giving them employment to support their families. “I saw how they strived despite their limitations and it inspired me at my own work here at AXA”, she confesses.
AXA Hearts in Action is our international program intended to AXA employees, through which they can carry out volunteering activities addressing various issues (for example disability, education, environment, health and social welfare). In 2017, more than 52,000 volunteering acts in at least 38 entities were counted, representing approximately 93,000 hours devoted to community investment projects for the benefit of society.
