Leading technology solutions and services provider Datapac (based in Enniscorthy) has announced the launch of its new Community Contribution Initiative which will give over 500 days back to local communities.
The company is providing employees with an additional three days of paid leave following the launch of the new initiative, and employees will use these days to engage in volunteering activities with organisations of their choice.
The launch of the new initiative reinforces Datapac’s commitment to promoting a positive work/life balance for its team. The company is encouraging employees to use this programme to champion the causes that matter most to them and enhance their wellbeing.
Datapac is rolling out the programme as communities begin to re-emerge from the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic and rebuild important connections.
This is the latest initiative introduced by Datapac to support employee wellbeing, following the launch of its Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) in conjunction with Laya Healthcare last year. This 24/7 resource is completely free, confidential and offers round-the-clock support and counselling to the team.
Karen O’Connor, General Manager, Datapac: “Over the span of our 40 years in business, we have always supported and strengthened our greatest and most important asset: our employees. A person’s time is their most valuable asset, which is why we want to empower our people to spend their time in the most enriching way possible.
“Everyone has a cause that is near and dear to them, yet due to the constraints and pressures of modern life, it can be difficult to find the time to fully contribute our efforts to them. With this new initiative, we are dedicated to supporting our employees’ wonderful contributions to their communities.”
