DBS’s employee volunteer movement, People of Purpose, brings our values to life, engages our employees, and leverages their time and skills to make meaningful contributions to the communities we live and work in.
In the last five years, thousands of DBS volunteers invested more than 200,000 hours in diverse volunteering initiatives to positively impact the lives of the elderly, children, persons with disabilities and marginalised families across Asia.
We continue to increase our collective impact with programmes that focus on Elderly, Education, and Environment. Why are these social gaps important to address?
Beyond service-based volunteer activation, DBS employees also engage in skills-based volunteering. Leveraging their diverse skills and knowledge in areas such as technology, financial management, data analysis, digital thinking, marketing communications and more, DBS volunteers contribute towards building the organisational capacity of social enterprises supported by DBS Foundation.
As a purpose-driven organisation, DBS firmly believes that its employees can make meaningful social impact in society through the investment of time, skills and efforts. To understand more about what we do as People of Purpose, watch these videos or write to us at PeopleOfPurpose@dbs.com.
DBS staff constantly step up to solve pressing business issues and challenges that social enterprises face. Watch this video above to see how our skills-based volunteerism programmes take shape and how we put our staff’s problem-solving skills to the test, while solving real business issues of various social enterprises in a single day.
