PEMBROKE, Bermuda--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AXIS Capital Holdings Limited (“AXIS Capital”) (NYSE:AXS), a global leader in specialty insurance and reinsurance, announced today its inaugural Global Day of Giving Rally, a time when employees across the organization will come together and participate in volunteer events to make a positive difference in their local communities. Throughout the month-long rally period, AXIS Capital is providing all employees time off to participate in volunteer service. The campaign scales up AXIS’ existing Day of Giving program where employees host local volunteer events.
“The Global Day of Giving Rally was inspired by our people, many of whom do so much throughout the year to give back in their local communities,” said Albert Benchimol, President and CEO, AXIS Capital. “This campaign is designed to empower our people to be able to do even more while bringing our entire company together to help enact positive change.”
Added Benchimol, “AXIS is proudly a values-driven organization and we adhere to a philosophy that we call ‘tomorrow matters today,’ a recognition that the actions that we take today carry a lasting impact on our future and that, in both life and business, we must prioritize the issues that matter most.”
Through the Global Day of Giving Rally, AXIS Capital will demonstrate the positive impact that can be made when employees come together and take a day to give back. Offices across the globe will support a broad range of causes from skills-based volunteering and low income senior care to stocking shelves at food pantries and providing support to disabled individuals.
For those who cannot volunteer, or volunteers who wish to do even more, AXIS Capital also matches employee donations to qualifying organizations.
