Our People, Our Communities
Our ATCO EPIC program is a grassroots initiative involving employee-led committees that plan, implement and administer workplace fundraising campaigns. The program combines fundraising events, auctions, friendly team competitions and employee pledges. Altogether, the program supports more than 800 charitable and non-profit organizations around the world. In 2018, our people raised $2.6 million bringing their total contributions since 2006, to $41 million!
Matching Dollars, Donating Hours
Our people donate to the charities of their choice in their communities. We match employee donations to human health and wellness charities, effectively doubling the impact in these communities. We cover all administration costs, ensuring that 100 per cent of the funds raised go directly toward the benefiting organizations.
We also recognize our people who volunteer their time and share their talents with charitable and non-profit organizations. Every year employees volunteering 50 hours or more are eligible to apply for a donation to a registered charity of their choice. In 2018, our people volunteered nearly 8,600 hours to make our communities a better place to work and live. This brings our cumulative total to more than 240,000 hours.
