Capgemini employees around the globe got active to help celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary and raise 100,000 Euro to support three impactful educational projects through ‘MoveFifty,’ the special birthday challenge with a purpose. MoveFifty brought colleagues together in movement and engagement to raise money for three education-focused charitable initiatives: Ciudad Quetzal, Enlight andCap Sur Le Code. Capgemini employees moved a total of 415,696 kilometers.
Over five months from June to October, Capgemini employees participated in MoveFifty to help raise the funds in two ways. First, it was through a physical challenge to accumulate as many kilometers as possible, in as many ways of movement as were possible to track (e.g. run, cycle, walk, jog), in support of a donation of up to 50,000 Euro to be shared among the three projects, proportional to the number of kilometers dedicated to each one of them.
Employees raised an additional 50,000 Euro for the three initiatives through engagement on social media. Team members shared, liked and re-tweeted posts across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Yammer using the 50thanniversary hashtag, #Capgemini50. The total number of social media engagements for the June, October timeframe reached 298,600. Read more
