Genzyme Invests in Volunteer Efforts
Through the Genzyme Invests in Volunteer Efforts (G.I.V.E.) program, Genzyme supports charities chosen by employees. Any employee can organize a team to volunteer and/or fundraise for a charity, and they can earn a G.I.V.E. grant for the charity from Genzyme in recognition of the volunteer team’s efforts.
Genzyme Australia and New Zealand also encourages our employees to be involved in community support activities. This commitment is demonstrated through a number of initiatives that include:
- Corporate Volunteering – employees are given one day per year to participate in corporate volunteering projects.
- Workplace Giving – staff have been given the opportunity to regularly donate a part of their pre-tax salary to a charity and the company has committed to matching staff contributions dollar for dollar.
- Fundraising support – the company will match dollar for dollar all employee- driven charitable fundraising efforts.
- Community Service Abroad – providing staff with the opportunity to take one month’s leave on full pay, to work in an Australian or overseas disadvantaged area of their choice.
Genzyme's workplace culture is rooted in our corporate values: innovation, entrepreneurialism, compassion, collaboration, drive, and integrity. Guided by these principles, we've established an environment that nurtures autonomy, yet encourages teamwork, that inspires employees to think big while empowering them to take hands-on action.
Our employees benefit from the stability and resources of a large, established company, but the entrepreneurial spirit and "can-do" attitude of our earliest start-up days continue to infuse our culture. Every employee recognises that somewhere, a patient is waiting for our help – lending a sense of purpose to our working environment.
We're proud of the way our employees embody Genzyme's corporate values in their day-to-day activities – here are just a few examples:
Genzyme offers every employee a path to succeed – and the resources, support, and inspiration to drive their professional development.
At Genzyme, we have a strong record of promoting from within, and many of our top leaders have built a significant portion of their careers moving through the company. We're deeply invested in the unique talents, skills, and interests of our employees, and we believe that any position at Genzyme offers the opportunity for professional development.
