RUNNING FOR A CAUSE: Nexia TS in its 5th CSR year of POSB PAssion Run for Kids

October 2014

 

As part of Nexia TS’s Corporate Social Responsibilty (CSR) dedication to giving back to the community, the firm’s staff joined the vibrant 8,800-strong runners on 14 September 2014 in the sixth annual POSB PAssion run for Kids 2014 at Marina Promontory which raised over $1.1 million dollars to support under-privileged children in our community.

 

 

As an incentive to advocate a healthy work life balance, participating staff and their family members were sponsored for the run which saw a huge Nexia TS team turnout this year. Monetary donation has also  been made to the POSB PAssion Kids Fund which supports innovative and meaningful community programmes to develop children into responsible and well-rounded adults.

 

POSB PAssion Run for Kids has been part of Nexia TS’s CSR focus for the past five years. From the launch of the firm’s CSR iniative in 2009, Nexia TS continues to draw strong support from staff members who share in its vision in giving back to the community. Year on year, the number of runners for this event has increased steadily and the firm thanks all those who had made the effort to participate in this event.

 

Nexia TS CSR Key Focus: Community Welfare

Nexia TS is working towards a paperless working environment by adopting a system of electronic working paper and documentation in its enterprise resource planning system. Our Go Green initiative includes the Shred- It recycling program where large quantities of unwanted documents are recycled. The firm has saved an average of 33 trees per year from destruction since 2009.

 

On an annual basis, Nexia TS has supported and sponsored POSB’s PAssion Run for Kids for five consecutive years since 2009. Donations were raised for POSB PAssion Kids Fund which is a part of the People’s Association Community Development Fund (PACDF) where its objective is to promote activities and programmes which will contribute towards social capital and community development.

 

Nexia TS has also been participating in the Boy’s Brigade Share-A-Gift project since 2008. With a dollar-for- dollar matching contribution from the firm in its cash donation drive, daily household items and groceries were purchased for distribution to the poor and needy families. Our little efforts can go a long way in bringing happiness to the 6,500 needy households in our society.
