Led by a Culture of Purpose, we are thoughtful about where we should and can use our time to great effect. The benefits of volunteering to charities and NGOs and to us as individuals are well known.
Our Gucci mission is one of delivering meaningful change so we are looking at long-term ways of creating deep, meaningful authentic partnerships with a variety of charities and NGOs across the world.
In 2019 we launched a new company-wide volunteering program called Gucci Changemakers, inspired by Salesforce’s Pledge 1% philanthropic model established in 2000, which empowers all our employees worldwide to dedicate 1% of their working time, between 2 and 4 paid work days (depending on type of employment contract), for volunteering activities with their preferred not-for-profits under four pillars: gender Equality, Refugees and Homeless, Education, Environment
Any of our employee can apply to an opportunity with a non-profit organization that is already in the dedicated internal platform or they can suggest an activity or a non-profit organization they would like to volunteer with, that would be checked before approval.
