Corporate volunteering supports local communities

by Bridget Badiou

What do IBM, Google, BMW, Biogen, Mondelez and Monsanto all have in common?

They all have an employee volunteer programme and they all had representatives at the recent conference in Zurich. I was there for Monsanto as we have a volunteer programme called Monsanto Together. It was launched in the U.S. about 2 years ago and is about to be extended to Europe. Monsanto is a member of IAVE, the International Association for the Volunteer Effort, and this year its annual conference was co-hosted by Credit Suisse in Zurich. Volunteer programmes may appear at first glance to be easy to implement. Give an employee some time off work to go and spend an afternoon filling boxes or painting a school or driving an elderly person to the shops.

The reality, Monsanto France told journalists today at its annual press conference, is more mundane–we sell entirely non-controversial, non-GM seeds and crop protection products, along with a popular weed killer–but no less motivating.

Monsanto has been active in France for more than 40 years, and continues to grow in response to steady demand from farmers in France and abroad...
