Our people offered their time and expertise to support local community organizations, as well as to donate management time and expertise to support nongovernmental organizations in the Company’s core activities. See below some of our volunteering programs:
Temenos Employees Fun Run 2018
380 Temenos employees and partners run 5K during the two most prominent Temenos events: Global Sales Meeting (GSM) 2018 in Lisbon and Temenos Community Forum (TCF) 2018 in Dublin to support the local community of a village in Kenya, in partnership with Hand in Hand International.
Through this poverty alleviation and local economic development program, that started in 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in 2020- Temenos awarded USD 30,000 to the local community in Kenya, aiming at training 400 villagers, creating around 350 jobs and lifting 1,250 children and adults out of poverty.
