As an employer of over 39,000 colleagues in 35 countries worldwide, we are present in many communities and we want to make a positive difference in those communities. Our Community Engagement Policy sets out our aims to make the communities where we work better places to live and do business, and encourage our colleagues to be involved with local communities to their mutual benefit. We focus many of our community engagement initiatives on supporting the development of skills for young people and those from deprived backgrounds, as well as supporting charitable causes, which are important to our colleagues and partners in a specific location.
Our businesses across the world have partnerships with a wide range of local and international charities, with each country team identifying the charitable causes which is most relevant to their colleagues and customers. Across all of our global markets, we have partnerships with more than 30 charities.
