Coastline launches their Community Volunteer Program “Coastline4Community” 1 July 2019
Coastline have introduced a workplace volunteering program “Coastline4Community” to provide the opportunity for Coastline employees to deliver unpaid assistance across many local organisations who rely on volunteers to remain operational.
Community support and engagement has always been at the heart of Coastline and to parallel this commitment to the local communities Coastline operate in, the financial institution have decided to encourage its employees to make a direct practical difference.
Coastline’s Head of People & Culture Jenny Thorman has said the program is a great way for Coastline to contribute to community well-being in all sectors of society.
“Coastline4Community has been envisioned around our [Coastline’s] workplace values, which continually inspire our staff during their workday. Providing the opportunity for our staff to give back to the community in a more personal way and to apply these values in local volunteer organisations will give both parties a real buzz.”
Coastline4Community will allow Coastline to release full-time and part-time employees at the Credit Union’s expense to volunteer in eligible organisations and engage in activities that support the values of the Credit Union.
Full-time employees will be entitled to up to three days volunteer leave per year, while part-time employees will receive a pro-rata entitlement to volunteer leave.
“Our staff work, live and interact in communities that cover many sectors of society such as animal welfare, children and youth services, education and health to name just a few. Each staff member will have the choice to be meaningfully involved in a diverse range of eligible local organisations,” Mrs Thorman said.
