CSR: Improving lives together

We all know the importance of putting back into the community that we live and work in. That’s why at every office we have around the world we all take the time to raise money, volunteer and sponsor charities to help reshape our community.

At the start of 2016 we set ourselves a new goal: to enhance our CSR efforts across our global business. Our challenge as an organisation is to contribute the equivalent of a million euros to charities and worthy causes across the Morgan McKinley global footprint of offices. We call it the Morgan McKinley Million.

In short it is about harnessing the collective goodwill and team spirit of our 800 people to do more by going beyond to improve the lives of others. In order for us to do this we have to push ourselves well beyond what we have done in the past. To put into context, this will be at least 10 times more than we have done in the last 3 years! So we organised teams in every country: Ireland, UK, France, China, India, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Australia to really start planning, and on the 5th July 2016 we launched the initiative across our Global business.

From the UK to Australia and Tokyo to Singapore, we all participate in a range of events and fundraisers, and you can be a part of it too! We’ve partnered with charities such as Unicef (Hong Kong), Bliss (UK), Careers Ready (UK), River of Hearts (Shanghai), and Lou's Place (Australia), to name just a few. Our staff have participated in Nuts Challenge obstacle courses, Sorting Days, marathons, and bake sales to raise money for those in need. Have a look at some of our events that we’ve done around the world and see how you could take part when you work at Morgan McKinley.
