Supporting a culture dedicated to service, Promega headquarters in Madison, WI, offers employees the opportunity to apply for up to five business days (40 hours) of paid time to volunteer for the charity or organization of their choice as part of the Promega in Action initiative. The employee is asked to journal his or her interactions through writing, videos and photographs and then come back to present and share these insights with colleagues. Here are a few recent Promega in Action experiences:
In 2017, I volunteered at the 24-hour “Goosebumps” Race, sponsored by the Local Lupus Alliance in La Crosse, WI. This organization is a nonprofit that provides financial, emotional and educational support to people suffering from Lupus and their caregivers. I felt honored that Promega would grant me the paid time off to help with setting up, organizing the event, and participating in the run. The “Promega in Action” program provides us opportunities to share our talents within our communities and to gain a deeper understanding of the various challenges that others live with day-to-day.
