Today, charities across the country will be working with leading HR consulting firm Mercer, as part of its new Canadian initiative, Mercer ‘Good Day’. The goal of Mercer’s first annual ‘Good Day’ is to support the communities in which it works, encouraging employee volunteerism by offering a day for employees to lend a helping hand to a variety of not-for-profit organizations.
The following is a snapshot of the ‘Good Day’ volunteering experiences that Mercer employees are participating in across Canada:
Mercer has been part of the Canadian community since 1937, helping local employers advance the health, wealth and careers of their most vital resource – their people. As an organization focused on supporting Canada’s workforce, growing and building local communities is a natural extension of Mercer’s work.
“We want to ensure that every one of our colleagues has the opportunity to make a collective contribution,” said Louis Gagnon, CEO, Mercer Canada. “We want our people to step out of the office, leave behind their computers, mobiles devices, unplug from work and email and make a difference in the communities in which we live and work.”
