Volunteering and fundraising
Where possible, volunteering is integrated into formal career development programmes. Examples include, running a careers advice session at a local school or providing health and safety training for a local charity.
Employees are also regularly involved in a range of individual or team volunteering projects such as helping out in local schools and packing Christmas boxes for injured armed forces personnel and their families.
In the US, we encourage employee fundraising through our Matching Gift Plan that matches employee contributions dollar for dollar up to $10,000 per year, per employee.
In action: King Fahad National Guard hospital
BAE Systems Saudi Arabia held a special event for patients on the children’s ward at the King Fahad National Guard hospital during the Eid festival. As well as planning various activities, games and competitions, there were also prizes and gifts for the children – all aimed at bringing a smile to their faces. The event is just one of the many activities that BAE Systems Saudi Arabia gets involved in as part of its community programmes across the Kingdom.
