World Car-free Day

Every 22nd September, we engage and encourage our stakeholders to leave their private transport at home and commute via public transport in support of the World Carfree Day.

This provides a great opportunity for us to make a firm stand on the need to change our behaviour and lifestyle in this car-dominated society. It is also the perfect time to reduce the stress and heat that have been placed on our planet Earth due to the increased dependency on electricity and technology, in return for convenience.

Charity Movie Screening

 

Charity Movie 1

 

On 7th November 2012, Fuji Xerox Singapore held our annual Charity Movie Screening event at Suntec City. Response was overwhelming as more than 1000 staff, customers and partners turned out in support of a meaningful cause.

Guests not only had the chance to catch the blockbuster film – Skyfall, but were also treated to a fun night of activities such as shooting games and photo taking opportunities with our pseudo James Bond and his Bond girl.

A total of S$27,000 was raised at the event and the full sum has been donated to Habitat for Humanity under the Batam Build Initiative. Fuji Xerox Singapore will continue to support Habitat's build projects to further spread happiness to the less fortunate around us.

Charity Golf Event

The annual Fuji Xerox Charity Golf Event hopes to provide a platform for our senior management, staff and customers to pit their skills against one another and to collectively drive home the message of supporting a good cause. On 6th September 2012, 140 golf enthusiasts took to the course at Raffles Country Club.

To recognise the golfers' efforts and to encourage everyone to do more for charity, Fuji Xerox Singapore also donated $200 for every Birdie and $400 for every Eagle recorded in the tournament.

The golfers were treated to dinner after the tournament where they had the opportunity to witness the build project undertaken by Fuji Xerox Singapore and also to understand more about Habitat for Humanity from their National Director, Mr Yong Teck Meng.

With the strong support of our customers, we have successfully raised $25,000 for Habitat for Humanity.

Batam Build

11

We provide support to a variety of initiatives not only in the local community but also to overseas communities which are in need of development. With Habitat for Humanity, we have embarked on build projects to eliminate poverty housing in Batam.

These build projects go beyond monetary donations and are aligned to Fuji Xerox's belief that volunteerism plays a big part in sustaining CSR programmes. Besides sponsoring material costs, our staff also travel to Batam to participate in the home building process together with the home partners. Work on the ground includes laying bricks, mixing cement, transportation of build materials and digging of earth for the septic tank.

A strong sense of participation and contribution is developed during the building process and new relationships are formed with the home partners. Being able to witness the structure of the house taking form after a day of work makes the experience especially rewarding for our volunteers.

Since the launch of the programme, we have received tremendous support from the management and staff alike. More than 1,000 employees, customers and partners have volunteered and gone on the build trips to Batam.

"Batam Build has helped me to appreciate what I have, and also the fact that no man is an island. We need to look out for one another and always be ready to lend a helping hand." – Stephanie Gomes Tay, Credit Management Officer

"I believe that as leaders, we have to "walk the talk" and set a good example by volunteering ourselves first. I shared with my team (25 staffs) and encouraged them to contribute to this meaningful event." – Willie Lim, Senior Manager, Value and Innovation Business Group.

Activity at Sunbeam Place

Besides partnering Singapore Children's Society for our Doing Well, Doing Good programme. Fuji Xerox Singapore also organised a day of activity with the children staying at Sunbeam Place. A team of 13 volunteers spent an afternoon of fun with the children as the children learnt how to build a terrarium of their own and also had a mini tele-sports match amongst themselves.

"It was certainly a very meaningful event. I believe the children at Sunbeam Place thoroughly enjoyed themselves and so did we. It brought the ‘kids' out of us and it was wonderful seeing everyone relating and connecting with the children. I am sure they will have great memories of the afternoon and will be reminded of our time spent with them whenever they see the plant they put together." - Pauline Chua, General Manager, Human Capital & CSR.
