Every year, LeasePlan USA and its employees support nine selected charities through volunteering, fund raising and donations.
All the charities are active in the local community, focusing mainly on helping vulnerable or disadvantaged children, or on environmental protection.
"Every charity we work for is chosen annually by dedicated committees at our offices near Atlanta and Chicago, as part of the country’s ‘LeasePlan Cares’ initiative," says Alanna Mohone, SVP Human Resources at LeasePlan USA.
"Our people really appreciate working for a company that has strong values. In fact, we’d like everyone to donate some time to community work, even if it’s just a couple of hours. For us, doing the right thing translates to strong engagement levels and great morale."
As Alanna explains, LeasePlan USA encourages its 530 employees to be actively involved in charitable work, offering up to two fully paid days to any employee volunteering for a LeasePlan charity or a registered charity of their choice.
"At a country level, LeasePlan USA centrally supports Ronald McDonald House Charities. This group of charities provide temporary homes at little or no cost to families that have travelled far to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children," says Alanna.
