The Optus workplace giving program allows our people to actively engage with the community and donate to causes that are important to them.
Every 3 years, a national survey facilitated by the Australian Charities Foundation, is undertaken amongst all Optus employees where feedback on charity partners and selections are made based on nominations and set criteria.
|The Optus ‘Answering the Call’ program currently supports 13 charities:|
Optus employees can donate to any of the Optus 13 charity partners through our workplace giving program, with Optus matching dollar for dollar up to $A200,000 per year. Since our workplace giving program launched in 2005, Optus people have generously donated $A660,000, with Optus matching every dollar to bring our overall community contribution to over $1.3M (as at March 2011).
