Promega in Action enables employees at Promega corporate offices in Madison, Wisconsin to use paid time to volunteer in the global community. Employees can apply for a grant of up to 40 hours to work for the charity or organization of their choice. In return, employees are asked to document their interactions and present their experiences and insights to their colleagues.
To date, 48 organizations have benefitted from the Promega in Action program, including local programs such as Madison Area Food Pantry Gardens and global programs such as SizaBantwana in South Africa. Employees' involvement with these groups often does not end when paid volunteer hours are exhausted. Many continue to actively volunteer, as well as recruit others to the cause.
