LegalWise employees mobilise their talents for good
Corporate Social Investment

LegalWise has a history of fostering a culture of community engagement among its employees. Opportunities for participation in community building activities are offered to employees under the banner of the Impilo Wellness Programme. Impilo, a Zulu word meaning “wellness of body and spirit”, focuses on encouraging wellness among our employee body as well as the communities in which we do business. This includes physical, mental, social and financial wellness.

Through the Impilo Employee Community Service programme, employees are encouraged to volunteer their time, talents and skills in service of others. Employee volunteering activities are built on the foundation shared-value relationships which benefit both employees as well as beneficiary organisations. These relationships are underpinned by the concept that everyone has strengths, talents and capabilities which can be mobilised to positively influence our circumstances.

Employees participate in a number of activities annually aimed at building social cohesion within the broader LegalWise community.

In November 2016, LegalWise employees were urged to mobilise their talents in support of the “16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children” campaign. This international campaign takes place every year from 25 November to 10 December and focuses on raising awareness around the issue of gender-based violence with the aim of eradicating this scourge in our society.

LegalWise joined the call to “UNiTE to End Violence against Women” and employees participated in various initiatives in support of people impacted by gender-based violence.

February 2017 saw employees once again participating in the annual CANSA Shavathon in support of people impacted by cancer. All contributions made by our employees were matched on a rand-for-rand basis and almost R22 000 was raised. The funds will be used by CANSA to continue providing care and support to those affected by cancer.

As an organisation which enforces and defends the rights of all individuals, Human Rights Day on 21 March saw employees providing education and information to schools, shelters and care facilities focusing on human rights, the Constitution and the Rights and Responsibilities entrenched therein.

July is Employee Volunteering Month at LegalWise and employees once again joined the world in celebrating the life of one of our most renowned statesmen by participating in community building activities throughout the country.

Staff from Head Office joined Dischem and the Ibumba Foundation in support of their #MillionComforts project, providing R10 000 worth of feminine hygiene products to be distributed to under-resourced communities.

LegalWise will continue to develop its Impilo Employee Community Service Programme by creating opportunities for employees to participate in community building activities that are aimed at enriching not only the lives of our employees but also the beneficiaries they aim to serve.
