The Employee Volunteer and Support(EVS) Program was initiated to implement in partnership with organisations to increase the impact of their social investment and promote civil societies ‘ support for positive social change in marginalized communities. Employees can participate in the EVS Program in three(3) ways-Employee Volunteering Week , Employee in Community Innovation and Employee Payroll Support or Sponsorship.
