Employees of Saint Lucia’s leading retailer of the world’s best brands in electronics and furniture products, Courts, made time to volunteer their time and skills as part of activities surrounding the company’s ‘Volunteer Week 2016’.
The initiative, which was held for the first time by the superstore, was launched with the primary objective of mobilizing staff in every country where Courts operates. While the company is known and appreciated for its commitment to continue bringing value home, Courts sees this initiative as an avenue to strengthen relationships within the communities, improve employee commitment and retention as well as to reinforce the company’s corporate image.
The Gordon and Walcott Memorial School, Marian Home and Comfort Bay Home were the three institutions selected by the company for ‘Volunteer Week 2016’. The volunteers, who included Unicomer employees, teachers and parents from the school, as well as members of the community, worked hand in hand to complete the selected projects.
At the Gordon and Walcott Memorial School the volunteers refurbished, repainted and pressure-washed various sections to beautify the school.
The residents of the Marian Home and Comfort Bay Home were treated to manicures and pedicures among other special activities scheduled for the day by the volunteers.
‘Volunteer Week 2016’ enabled employees to use their time to benefit the community. This initiative coincided with the business’s strategic commitment to workplace volunteerism and civic engagement by offering outstanding services and programmes.
The management and staff of Unicomer (Saint Lucia) Limited, trading as Courts, would like to extend sincere gratitude to the principal and staff of the Gordon and Walcott Memorial School, parents and volunteers as well as the management and residents of the Marian and Comfort Bay Homes. The company extends further gratitude to employees who volunteered their time and skill in celebration of ‘Volunteer Week 2016’.
