This year marked the 30th Anniversary of our Group and to commemorated the special occasion, we organised a Walkathon and Fundraising event on 3 September 2022.
Themed, Walk With Us, the objective of the event was to support and give back to the local communities in each city. The event took place simultaneously in 11 cities – Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, Seoul, Jakarta, Shenzhen and Taipei.
“After 30 years, we are now far bigger, faster and stronger, from the technology backbone that is integral to the business, to the new workflows that speed up processes and improve service delivery standard for our clients and candidates. With this event, we want to continue making a difference by raising funds to benefit the communities which have nurtured our growth”, said Adeline Sim, Executive Director and Chief Corporate Office of HRnetGroup during the event.
In each city, we walked a total of 5km, however, our team in Seoul, went a step further by walking a total of 10km. There were over 500 people that attended including all employees under our group, the clients, candidates and their family members.
We had a total of 8 beneficiaries that were included in this fundraiser – Code in the Community for Singapore, Tzu Chi Foundation Malaysia for Kuala Lumpur, Yayasan Kanker Anak Indonesia for Jakarta, The Community Chest of Hong Kong for Hong Kong, Eden Social Welfare Foundation for Taipei, Shanghai Sunflower Community for Shanghai, Angel House Orphanage for Seoul and Make-A-Wish Foundation for Tokyo.
In line with giving back to communities, we donated S$10 for every 1km walked which amounted to S$32,255. Our clients and candidates also contributed to this fundraising event and it totaled up to S$13,585.
We would like to thank everyone that donated and participated during the Walkathon. The contributions made will definitely go a long way in making a difference to the lives of those supported by the charities. Together, we can make a difference.
To add on to the fundraising, we have also created our own NFT, where our mascot, Ruby, is featured in different cities. Proceeds from this will also be donated to the charities that the respective cities are raising funds for in this CSR initiative.
