The Asystec ‘Random Act of Kindness’ programme was started in early 2018 and see’s the company support local, regional and national charities and organisations. Each quarter, the company invites employees to nominate a worthy cause, to be in with a chance of receiving a monetary donation from Asystec.
“It is important to us that we give back to the community and do our bit to make the lives of others, even a little bit easier”, Managing Direct Les Byrne comments. “Just before Christmas we once again invited employees to nominate a worthy cause of their choice and as always we received a plethora of nominations. Following random selection Jigsaw Mental Health Services, Cork, were chosen as the winner.”
