Employee Engagement:

C&G promotional activities such as exhibitions, recruiting fairs and open days do not count as CarGen in Society activity. Business leaders will work with the Communications team to identify community partners and employee engagement opportunities. The program should be consistent across the Company and not vary per business unit and region and aligned to our vision and mission. Employee employment projects are voluntary, and they serve as a way of strengthening C&G existing or develop new partnerships with not for profit/non-governmental organizations making a positive impact.
