Everyone in the business is entitled to two extra paid days off per year to volunteer. We call it Return on Purpose (ROP) – Give time enables us all get involved and support our purpose in a tangible way. We encourage colleagues to volunteer for a cause that aligns to our purpose of healthier lives and happier homes.
As part of our give time programme, we run two global initiatives in partnership with Raleigh International – the ‘Global volunteer challenge' and a long-term volunteering programme.
Thousands of people in Bangladesh have set a Guinness World Record for mass sweeping in an effort to raise awareness of the need for cleaner cities. It was the biggest mass sweep in Guinness World Record history. A total of 7,021 people took to the streets of central Dhaka in Bangladesh, picked up a broom and contributed to a giant clean-up campaign back in April. They smashed the previous record of 5,058 'people sweeping the same floor at a single venue' set by the city of Vadodara in India in 2017.
