We dedicate ourselves to the communities in which we live and work. Giving back and driving change are not only a social responsibility but a key aspect of our corporate culture. LogiCares creates opportunities for our employees to give back to the communities we touch.
Empowering our people
Empowering our employees to deepen their relationships with their local communities is fundamental to our culture of giving. Whether it is through paid volunteer time off, or our donations-matching program, we encourage our people to contribute to the communities in which we live and work.
As part of our 2021 Earth Day celebrations, Logitech partnered with ForestNation, an organization helping companies and individuals reforest our planet. We encouraged employees to get outside and enjoy nature to celebrate the places they grow, live, and play. For every employee that took a walk, we planted trees in the Logitech Forest in Tanzania.
Our local communities
At Logitech, we aim to create opportunities to come together and invest in the communities in which we live and work. This is done in collaboration with employees, and Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) who help envision and execute how we contribute to the communities they represent.
LogiCares Magic in Lausanne
LogiCares Lausanne really made the holidays magical with donations and other efforts, coordinating with local nonprofits Caritas Vaud and Cartons du Coeur. Colleagues from the Switzerland office gave their time, goods, and care to local residents in need this year through the following initiatives: a winter clothing drive, Samedi du Partage, a food drive, support for a shelter, and product donation.
Logitech employees in Cork, Ireland supported Make-a-Wish Ireland for the holiday season. Make-A-Wish is a Children's Charity that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to give hope, strength, and joy.
Adopt an Angel, San Francisco Bay Area
Logitech's Silicon Valley office has contributed to Adopt an Angel for over 20 years. Adopt-an-Angel supports the children in Alameda County Child Protective Services. The children make wish lists, requesting items they want, and the program finds volunteers to purchase, wrap, and deliver those gifts to brighten their holiday season.
Anaikkum Karangal Children’s Shelter, Chennai
Logitech volunteers went to Anaikkum Karangal, a children’s shelter home run by Bhumi NGO. Notebooks and flash cards were made and used by these children for the academic year. Employees also set up fundraising events where each clan hosted games, prepared refreshments and offered items that were sold internally to raise funds. The funds were used to support six students through Higher Education, Children Welfare and Women empowerment programmes.
Chung Yi Social Welfare Foundation, Taiwan
Logitech volunteers from our Taiwan welfare committee set up a booth to wash, cut and pack fruit, to be sold along with coffee, cupcakes and books. The funds raised were used to support Chung-Yi’s Childrens Home, for children under the age of 18.
