CDW UK Coworkers Impact Local Communities
All CDW UK coworkers are eligible for one day of paid volunteer time and they use the time wisely, participating in more than 40 community initiatives in 2020 and 2021. The coworker-led projects addressed a wide range of environmental and social needs, including:
The Big Clean Up: Coworkers gave more than 1,000 hours of volunteer time to clean up local streets, parks and beaches during The Big Clean Up on World Environment Day in June 2021. This effort was done in coordination with our vendor partner HP, which subsequently recognized CDW UK as a 4 Star Certified Sustainable Impact Partner for this and other efforts.
Challenge 24: More than 70 UK coworkers participated in 24 hours of moving – running, cycling and walking – to support Dementia UK, a nonprofit that supports nurses caring for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease patients and their families. In 2021, CDW and its partners donated approximately 9000 pounds, which included a matching gift by CDW UK.
International Women’s Day and International Men’s Day: CDW UK coworkers celebrated both days, March 8 and November 19, respectively, with special speakers and social media outreach related to DEI, wellness and mental health.
