2020 is a year that will be remembered for its challenges. Right across the world, people adjusted to the significant changes brought about the Covid-19 Pandemic and learned to live and work in much adjusted ways.
Intel Ireland has a long and proud tradition of volunteering. This tradition is underpinned by the Intel Involved programme, a global initiative that facilitates opportunities for volunteering and encourages employees to get involved in the communities where they live and work. As a result of the challenges and changes brought about by the Covid pandemic, the expectation for 2020 was that volunteer hours contributed by employees would take an understandable dip. However, at this most challenging time, Intel Ireland employees stepped up and volunteered more hours in 2020 than ever before. In total, more than 178,000 hours were volunteered by Intel employees all across Ireland.
The average number of hours volunteered by employees at Intel was the highest per person of any Intel site in the world. This is an incredible achievement and conveys the resilience, determination and commitment to volunteering that has been demonstrated by Intel employees throughout this pandemic.
The hours volunteered by Intel employees come in many different ways. For some people, they gave time to supporting pandemic relief efforts, for example by making items of PPE at home, helping to deliver PPE and other equipment, or providing community training.
Others found ways to continue to support charities – for instance the Intel Knitting club made hundreds of items for small babies at Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) at Crumlin. Many employees continued to support local sporting organisations through online activities and to support their local schools in a variety of creative ways.
