For more than a century, volunteerism has been a vibrant part of GE's culture, as both an individual employee activity as well as an organizational effort. We coordinate our resources — including products, matching gifts, grants and people — to create responses tailored to local and individual challenges. Today, the ultimate measure of GE's business is found in the improvements to the lives touched by our work.
Every day, GE employees help improve the communities where we live and work through volunteer programs, grants and donation in health, education, environment, and community development.
In 2012, we mobilized 379 GE volunteers, almost half of the total number of GE employees in Indonesia, and contributed close to 5,000 volunteer hours.
