For the third consecutive year, our global colleagues participated in Biogen Idec’s Care Deeply Volunteer Day, our largest volunteer effort to date.
This worldwide initiative enables employees to participate in meaningful community service projects and has a beneficial impact in every location where Biogen Idec operates around the world. More than 1,900 employees took part in more than 122 projects in 28 countries in 2013.
Biogen Idec’s Care Deeply Volunteer Day was introduced across the company’s largest locations in 2011 and rolled out globally to all of our locations in 2012. This innovative program marries our commitment to community outreach with employee engagement.
Employees around the world develop unique programs that are focused on having a measurable impact in their local communities – from activities that benefited the environment to initiatives related to the diseases our therapies address.
