The following month some 1,700 employees and their families welcomed the 22nd annual Citi Building Hope and Home, visiting a Habitat for Humanity construction site in Cheonan, South Chungcheong Province, to build homes for the homeless.
According to Citibank Korea, its volunteer work involves three principles -- employee participation, long-term commitment and leading activities. These principles foster a culture of active participation beyond monetary donations, so employees can find joy in volunteering, the firm said.
Other outreach programs run by the company include Think Money, a financial education program for teenagers, Ewha-Citi Global Finance Academy, which fosters young female talent, and the Citi-KyungHee University NGO Internship Program.
