2012 marks the 20th anniversary of Timberland’s Path of Service™ program, which provides paid time off to our employees to volunteer in their communities for the organizations and causes that are most meaningful to them.
As we celebrate 20 years of the Path of Service internally, we’re grateful to also be recognized for it externally. Today, Timberland is one of three companies being honored by Points of Light with the 2012 Corporate Engagement Award of Excellence – a prestigious award that recognizes innovative volunteer programs designed to create positive change in communities.
Points of Light is the leading global volunteer organization, whose mission is to inspire, equip, and mobilize people to take action that changes the world. Timberland has been a long-time fan of the good work Points of Light supports, and it’s both an honor and a privilege to receive their vote of confidence for Timberland’s efforts as well.
What the Corporate Engagement Award of Excellence really recognizes, of course, is the passion, energy and dedication of Timberland employees worldwide to make a difference in their communities. We’re so proud to have a team that cares as deeply about the world around them and works so hard to make it better … and hope you’ll have a chance to join us in service one day. In the meantime, we extend our deep appreciation to our employees, our communities, and Points of Light for their support of the Path of Service™ program. Here’s to another 20 years of service!
