NetSuite has always been ahead in ensuring that its employees are enjoying a balance of work and leisure. Through various company-sponsored activities, such as charity races, NetSuite employees are able to enjoy a refreshing break from their hectic schedules while still maintaining a fit and healthy lifestyle.
This past February, NetSuite employees in the Philippines had the opportunity to join, for the second year in a row, the 5th American Chamber Foundation ScholaRun at the Bonifacio Global City. A total of 200 NetSuite employees ran for the benefit of the AmCham Foundation Scholarship Program, joining over 2,000 runners from different sectors and companies also supporting the cause.
NetSuite.org, the corporate citizenship arm of NetSuite, partnered with software donation grantee American Chamber Foundation Philippines, Inc. to help raise enough funds to send 100 scholars in the Philippines to a university.
Before the race started, NetSuite employee volunteers led the warm-up exercises to prepare the NetSuite participants. Volunteer photographers were also present to capture the employees’ winning moments during the run. Food was also distributed before and after the race to ensure that the NetSuite runners are well-nourished throughout the run. There were also games, raffles, as well as an awards ceremony for participants.
Joining the AmCham ScholaRun 2016 was indeed a perfect start to a great year ahead. It was not only a corporate-sponsored activity, but also an effective way to promote a healthy lifestyle and camaraderie among NetSuite employees. Most of all, it paved way for an opportunity to serve the underprivileged and further manifested NetSuite’s commitment to helping nonprofit organizations.
