CAMPAIGN: NortonLifeLock | Community Impact


At Symantec, employees are key players in the success and expansion of our corporate responsibility (CR) program. As part of the community relations team, I feel incredibly lucky to experience first-hand the tremendous efforts our employees put forth to support our CR strategy and corporate values both through their jobs and personal time.

It is for this reason the impact our company has through volunteering and corporate philanthropy has continued to grow and expand year over year. For example:

  • We increased recorded employee volunteer hours 23 percent fiscal year over fiscal year. Last year Symantec employees across the globe collectively logged over 31,800 volunteer hours, a 23 percent increase over the previous year. Activities ranged from raising awareness about child homelessness to promoting gender diversityto ensuring opportunities for disadvantaged youth and inspiring our future engineering and science talent.
  • In FY15 we’ve set a new goal to increase tracked volunteer hours by an additional 20%.
  • A huge highlight this year was entering the world of International Corporate Volunteering (ICV) programs with the Symantec Service Corps. In February 2014, a 10-person team from seven different locations, traveled to Arequipa, Peru to provide expertise to local non-profits in key business areas including marketing, accounting, and human resources. The team spent a month on the ground. Check out the video of this incredible journey in to the top right, or here!
