A CULTURE OF GIVING BACK
Asystec have a strong commitment to the community and strive to always show compassion and care in giving back to the community that has helped us become the successful company we are today. Corporate social responsibility has become an integral part of the company ethos with philanthropy, fundraising and volunteering ingrained in the company culture.
“There is a very strong culture of giving back to the community, whether it is financial contributions, time off to do volunteer work, or corporate social responsibility activities. I am very proud of the social commitment here at Asystec. Our philanthropic work and volunteerism isn’t just a department or policy – it’s really a culture of giving that runs deep in the company DNA. It feels good to be a part of it.” – Les Byrne, Managing Director, Asystec.
FUNDRAISING AND PHILANTHROPY
At Asystec, we run a number of fundraising activities during the year to reflect causes that have touched many of our people whether directly or indirectly. Just some of the organisations that we support throughout the years include: The Laura Lynn Foundation, The Bubblegum Club, Temple Street, Pieta House, The Irish Cancer Society, St. Vincent de Paul, and many more.
Asystec also host a ‘Random Act of Kindness‘ programme each quarter. The programme invites employees to nominate a charity, organisation or worthy cause, to be in with a chance of receiving a monetary donation from Asystec. Last quarter, after random selection, Jigsaw Mental Health Service, Cork were selected as the winner.
We are proud to have supported many local, regional and national charities and organisations in this way, and we look forward to continuing the programme for 2019 and beyond.
Asystec actively encourage its employees to become immersed in community activities and volunteering. The companies proactive approach to charity encourages our employees to get involved in making their difference in the lives of others. Asystec employees have been involved in fundraising for a plethora of worthy causes both local, regional and national. Asystec are also proud to exercise a ‘Matched Funds’ policy whereby employees can submit a proposal to the company showcasing a fundraising initiate they organised or were involved in organising, and the company match the figure raised.
We feel good when we do good and Asystec are delighted to play our part in sponsoring Cannonball Ireland 2018 in aid of ISPCC Childline. Cannonball has already raised an amazing €1,000,000 for Irish charities over the past 10 years. Asystec will continue to sponsor Cannonball in 2019. ‘Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much’.
Asystec are also proud to sponsor Garryowen Football Club for 2018-2019. For a business that has grown from its small Limerick roots to an international business with almost 50 employees, it is important to the company that we remain connected and supportive of our local Limerick roots.
