Our firm has organized a Volunteer Week every year since 2014. The most popular event of the week is Volunteer Day, which this year took place in August. About 250 PwC staff visited various non-profit nature conservation organizations, foundations, and national parks to get acquainted with them and to donate their labour and skills. Among others, we visited the premises of Erdőmentők Alapítvány, Kispatak Természetvédelmi Egyesület, Piliscsabai Természetjáró Egyesület, Hegyre Megy Egyesület, Duna-Ipoly Nemzeti Park and Utcáról Lakásba Egyesület.
We launched our CR project “It’s about others” for the eighth time in 2018. Our aim is to show that it is not enough to talk about corporate responsibility, but we must take action. We would like to raise students’ and employees’ awareness of the importance of corporate responsibility, and give groups engaged in this field the opportunity to carry out their own corporate responsibility projects.
In March 2017, the Pro Bono Team at PwC Hungary launched a mentoring programme for non-profit organisations. We continued the programme in 2018 and 2019, enhanced by the experience we gathered last years. Our experts held a series of trainings in five modules for nonprofit organisations whose applications for the programme had been successful. The trainings also provided the participants development and networking opportunities. This was followed by a six-month mentoring programme for the organisations selected by the panel. During these six months, PwC’s employees assisted the organisations and provided them guidance in their everyday operation.
