Xylem launched the Global Month of Service to commemorate its fifth anniversary.
In addition to generating more than 7000 volunteer hours, Xylem employees selected 18 local organizations to receive a US$1000 Community Grant and they collectively contributed more than US$100 000 in personal donations to Xylem Watermark’s global nonprofit partners.
Earlier this year, Xylem announced a goal of having employees contribute 100 000 volunteer hours over three years to water-related causes.
“Our inaugural global Month of Service has been a great way for our colleagues to learn about, address, and educate others on water issues in their communities and around the world,” said Colin Sabol, senior vice president and chairman of the Xylem Watermark Committee. “Support for Watermark has been an essential part of building our culture of engagement and volunteerism here at Xylem, and has brought us significantly closer to our goal of logging 100 000 employee volunteer hours by the end of 2018.”
