The Company named 2022 the Year of Corporate Volunteering
Corporate volunteering gives us an opportunity to fulfil our commitment to social responsibility to society and country at large. Fostering corporate volunteering is deeply rooted in our social policy.
There is always someone who needs help, that is why there is no end to doing good deeds
2,455 volunteering initiatives were organised across the railway network
Seven domains of corporate volunteering:
Advancing cultural and historical heritage
Assistance to railway passengers
By being engaged in activities in those seven domains, the Company’s employees build dedicated communities enabling everyone, regardless of their age, to achieve personal growth together with their colleagues, family, friends and industry retirees. Corporate volunteers who contribute to various projects at the bidding of their heart provide a boost to the Company.
The Company launched the rating of railway corporate volunteering councils:
- the West-Siberian Railway was rated first and awarded with Russian Railways’ perpetual cup in corporate volunteering;
- the Northern Railway came second;
