Lenovo Volunteers Outperform Giving Trends, Increase Impact and Volunteerism in Love on Month of Service

Published 01-24-23

For the sixth year in a row, Lenovo employees have grown their annual volunteer-led month of service. Since its beginning, Lenovo’s philanthropic team has aimed to grow the annual volunteer project by at least one metric each year, whether it be number of beneficiaries, volunteers, hours logged, or participating offices. The 2022 global event stretched for 4 weeks from September 15 – October 15 and project leaders once again delivered annual growth in number of beneficiaries (+49%), hours volunteered (+20%), and number of volunteers (+2.5%).

According to recent data from CECP, corporate volunteer rates haven’t fully recovered from the Covid-19 pandemic. “Volunteer participation rates rebounded from the lows of 2020, but remained below pre-pandemic averages”, they share in Giving in Numbers: 2022 Edition. Lenovo employees’ volunteerism pushes back on this trend, with many sites gaining momentum as they returned to the office and were able to host projects in person after two years of virtual volunteerism.

“Our impact is a credit to our employees. We have project leaders in offices like Glasgow, Bratislava, Paris, Jakarta and Mexico City who have been leading projects at their sites since 2017,” said Calvin Crosslin, Lenovo Foundation President and a Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer at Lenovo “Our employees continually demonstrate their appetite to give back, and the Love on Month of Service is about empowering these leaders with the resources they need to make an impact.”

Employees at Lenovo are encouraged to volunteer 8 hours per quarter through a volunteer benefit, with additional dollars given that they can award to their favorite charity when hours are logged.

While the global growth and metrics of the program are something the entire workforce can be proud of, the stories of unique projects can be the most inspiring takeaway from the annual event.
