To support the group’s staff giving program, Infocus recently surveyed all 70 staff across the group to select a Charity who will benefit from this year’s fundraising activity. In 2017, the Infocus team chose a clear winner: the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Managing Director and CEO Rod Bristow, said “Infocus’ workplace giving program, developed in response to our team’s feedback, really helps provide meaning.”
“Over the past year, we have been speaking more and more about our Why. Why we are here; why we want to make a difference; and why helping people is important to us. It is part of who we are and it is really encouraging to see that we have so many like-minded employees that are passionate about making a difference”, he said.
Just under two-thirds of Infocus group employees have opted in to donate to this worthy cause via regular payroll deductions. Staff that contribute will also have the option to participate in a volunteer program which will be held in May, where Infocus team members will come together to raise additional donations for the Starlight Children’s Foundation. This will also allow Infocus Group employees to connect with their peers while supporting such a great cause.
This year’s staff giving program continues Infocus’ tradition of raising funds for charity. In 2016, Infocus Group advisers and alliance partners raised $8,504.50 for beyondblue at the annual iCON conference in Singapore. Infocus matched that amount raised, resulting in a donation of $17,009 to beyondblue.
