Leveraging employee skills
MetLife employees contributed 36,000 hours of skilled service in 2019.
In partnership with Taproot Foundation, MetLife Foundation joined forces with Dell Technologies to host a pro bono skill-sharing workshop in North Carolina — a first-of-its-kind, two-company collaboration. The objective: help nonprofit organizations redesign an approach, process, or tool core to their success. Volunteers from MetLife and Dell led projects at six organizations — the Alzheimer’s Association, Bridge II Sports, Green Chair Project, Habitat for Humanity, Marbles Kids Museum, and Urban Ministries — ranging from developing a more user-friendly online donation tool to creating a help desk system to increase operational efficiency. MetLife plans to build on the success of the workshop by collaborating on additional skills-based projects globally with Dell in 2020.
Our employees globally participate in other types of skills-based volunteerism, individually and in teams, on single days and for extended periods.
