Supporting our Community
We believe our business should benefit society and support the local communities in which we operate.
The Fuji Xerox mission asks that we contribute to the advancement of the global community by fostering mutual trust and enriching diverse cultures.
We want to build better communities by using our core competencies to help solve social problems and by encouraging employee involvement at a community level. Globally, our two focus areas for social impact are Education for future generations and the preservation of diminishing cultures and information. Our community engagement involves volunteering, financial and in-kind support, and exploring how we can add greater value through strategic partnerships and skilled volunteering. We encourage our people to get involved and make a difference. Their skills, passion, talents and experience and our Fuji Xerox solutions and services can help our local community, have a positive impact on society and create a rewarding personal experience for our people.
Working with leading organisations
United Way Australia
We have a long-standing relationship with United Way. Our partnership goes well beyond employee participation in volunteering activities and workplace giving, with strategic support provided by senior management.
We believe that higher educational achievement increases the financial advantage of young people. Senior Fuji Xerox leadership extends strategic counsel to United Way towards achieving this and more.
"...Fuji Xerox Australia is a corporate leader because of the genuine commitment to investing in the community. This commitment is manifest in an array of practices such as fostering employee volunteering,
actively promoting workplace giving and encouraging executives to play leadership roles in their local community. It's this sort of leadership that will help us realise our shared vision of all people having the
opportunity to reach their full potential through education."
Chief Executive Officer, United Way Australia
Australian Business and Community Network
We have a national partnership with the Australian Business and Community Network (ABCN), providing our employees with opportunities to take on mentoring and coaching roles with students in areas of high need.
A number of our senior leaders across the country have also established partnerships with school principals through ABCN's 'Partners in Learning' program to share experiences, solve problems and explore leadership challenges together.
In 2014 we also established a perpetual scholarship through the ABCN Scholarship Foundation, providing funding and mentoring support to high potential students facing economic, family or social challenges. A Fuji Xerox Australia employee takes on a mentoring role to support the student in setting goals and developing valuable workplace skills. Funding is provided though Year 11, 12 and their first year of tertiary education, to spend on study resources and help alleviate financial hardship.
Fuji Xerox Australia matches donations from our employees 100 per cent through our voluntary Workplace Giving program. All funds go to support the United Way Ready to Read program. This program aims to ensure that children start school ready to learn so they may reach their full potential. The program combines monthly home-delivered books, parent literacy support and drives community-level support and change.
We provide opportunities for our employees to volunteer through our national community partners and through local site based initiatives coordinated by our strong network of Community Champions.
A number of our employees provide voluntary service to the Australian community through emergency services organisations such as the Rural Fire Service and State Emergency Service. Our employees' dedication to volunteering for these emergency services is commended by Fuji Xerox Australia and additional leave is granted for them to support disaster response efforts.
