CSR Initiative: NEXTORCH Employee Relief and Assistance Funds
As far as NEXTORCH’s concerned, CSR is not just what you do for others, but it’s about what you do for your own employees to positively impact their lives. Therefore, over the years NEXTORCH has established its own employee assistance fund (EAF), also known as an Employee Relief Fund or an Employee Crisis Fund, aiming to help employees cope with unexpected hardships that place undue financial stress on them and their families.
Whether employees or their family members fall ill, are furloughed or laid off, or have other related hardships, donations to the fund are made several ways: a one-time or periodic gift from the employer, fellow employee contributions, and sometimes through fundraising activities, etc.
Thanks to this EAF demonstrating true compassion and caring for employees, most NEXTORCH staffs who felt cared for plan to stay for the next three years.
