One of our key corporate social responsibility activities is our annual Community Partnership Day. Community Partnership Day provides an opportunity for employees at all our UK sites to dedicate their work day to volunteering in charitable activities, which make a difference in local communities.
Employees support local projects varying from sorting charity donations, gardening and decorating at a local school, hosting a tea party at a care home and running a charity car wash.
“What can I say; the Novartis staff were wonderful. I think everyone worked so hard but had fun whilst doing it. It was such a great day and we are absolutely delighted with all the work that was done. Please send my personal thanks to all those great people. I actually feel I made some new friends.”
This year marked the 20th annual Community Partnership Day, which commemorates the 1996 creation of Novartis as a global leader in healthcare, and demonstrates the company’s heritage and commitment to discover new ways to improve and extend people’s lives.
