Dimension Data’s opportunities to give back
More than simply saying we believe in South Africans’ ability to help their communities, we enable our employees to change lives. Every Dimension Data employee is entitled to a day’s leave which they can dedicate to a community-building initiative. It helps ensure that we live by what we believe in. Some of our employees have even taken this a step further and incorporated this sentiment into their everyday lives.
Often you look at the kids growing up these days and see that they’re stuck inside with technology, like smart phones or video games. I’m a firm believer in the benefits of being fit and healthy. I believe that getting children on bicycles and encouraging them to be more active, helps with their development and turns them into more well-rounded adults.
Dimension Data has enabled us to make a difference, whether it’s big or small. From raising thousands of rands to supply underprivileged children with toys to being able to take time from our day to spend with them. That’s what is so amazing about working with Dimension Data. It’s the fact that we’re able to do these things and that we’re surrounded by like-minded people who want to make a difference and help others.
Sometimes I want to change the world, but I feel that as long as you’re making a difference in one person’s life, you’re making progress. Dimension Data is helping us make a difference in so many people’s lives.
