At Bell, we believe being an outstanding corporate citizen is about using our financial resources and the expertise of our employees to invest in the communities we serve. Bell employees have been giving back to communities across Canada since the company was created most than 130 years ago In continuation of this tradition, BCE is pleased to invest over $ 15 million annually to support a variety of community initiatives.
Our people care
BCE and Bell employ some of the best-performing people in the business. Our policies and practices aim to attract, retain and inspire employees who demonstrate leadership, innovative thought and commitment — people who care about what they do. Not surprisingly, our employees' sense of commitment spills over into their personal lives, generating an abundance of goodwill, generosity and community service.
BCE and Bell would like to acknowledge the achievements of thousands of employees and retirees who have invested time, money and expertise to many causes. These unsung heroes have made a real difference in many people’s lives.
In 2011, employees and retirees of Bell Canada and Bell Aliant have made pledges of over $ 1.6 million to various charities and they made more than 413,000 hours of volunteering.
Employees can refer to the «In The Community» section of Bellnet for more information about the Employee Giving Program and the Volunteer Grant for charitable and sports organizations.
Retirees may find all relevant information about these programs at www.intouch.bell.ca
In partnership with United Way/ Centraide Bell helps fund the vital social services that build healthy communities. We are also proud to be an important part of the United Way's annual fundraising campaign through our Employee Giving Program and local fundraising events, as well as corporate donations.
While Bell's Community Investment strategy is squarely focused on mental health, as Canada’s largest Internet Service provider, our Community Investment strategy also encompasses ensuring the internet is safe for all users, especially our children. We have invested in a variety of programs which reflect our commitment to Cyber Safety.
