Rewarding our team’s volunteer efforts
In today’s world, time is our most valuable resource – and when we give our time to make a difference in the lives of others, the impact we can have is remarkable. We are committed to recognizing our team members and retirees who volunteer selflessly to make our communities better places to live.
“When it comes to volunteering, the TELUS team makes such a huge impact. In my own personal volunteering experiences, I have had the opportunity to see the happy smiles created and this makes the effort so much more worth it.”– Karen, a member of the TELUS team
For every volunteer hour a member of our team records in a calendar year, we make a $1 donation to the charity of their choice.
In 2016 our team members contributed more than 870,000 volunteer hours in communities across Canada. In recognition, we donated $560,000 to Canadian charities and not-for-profit sports organizations on their behalf. Since 2000, we’ve volunteered more than 7.7 million hours…that’s a lot of difference making.
