Global Day of Service
Lilly‘s Global Day of Service – Hands and Hearts
A day in October each year is dedicated to a global day of service that is set aside for all Lilly employees around the world. The aim of this day of service is to give back to the community where the Lilly employees live and work. Each year in Lilly South Africa the projects differ depending on which community needs the most assistance.
The projects are then planned in the different communities. ''Our employees are passionate about making a difference in people’s lives. Our Global Day of Service is one of the initiatives, which assists us to give back to the communities, with the goal of making life better for people around the world. This is an exceptional experience and privilege for us as Lilly employees." said Daniel Binette, Managing Director of Lilly South Africa.
