Employee volunteering

Our strongest asset is the talent of Philips’ employees, and we encourage them to share their skills. The Philips Foundation has helped develop a program focusing the company’s one-day team volunteering on a single, firm topic each year. Combining the capabilities of over 70,000 employees on a shared global healthcare goal makes it possible to have real impact.


For the coming year, reducing worldwide child mortality rates caused by childhood pneumonia will be the common aim.


We believe that as employees engage, those experiences will help them better understand the needs of the people Philips Foundation seeks to serve, and will inspire innovative new ideas for how to make life better.
