VMware People Contributing to the Community Every Day

VMware believes that all people can learn and grow through service to the community. That’s why the Service Learning program is at the core of the VMware Foundation. This commitment to learning through service is what makes the company’s Citizen Philanthropy approach to giving unique, and it’s why VMware was excited to be highlighted in Fortune’s 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back.

While Service Learning is at the core of what VMware does, it’s the passions and individual actions of VMware people that ripple outward to create VMware’s collective impact. The VMware Foundation’s Little Book of Big Impact is a snapshot of the company’s 2015 giving network in action. It captures the scope of how VMware people serve, learn, and inspire. From the Good Gigs Trekkers who brought digital transformation to a school in South Africa, to the expanding number of employee Citizen Council members who inspire their colleagues to take action—individual efforts fuel collective impact.

Last year, more than 15,500 VMware people gave with gratitude and open minds, choosing to contribute time, talent, and resources to more than 3,500 nonprofits in 43 countries. Their collective impact reflects the company’s core value of community: giving more than you take.

#WeServe every day. While the Little Book of Big Impact is a look back at the VMware Community’s contributions in 2015, VMware people support the global community every day through Service Learning and other VMware Foundation programs. To kick off the #WeServe employee series, Rashmi, a senior technical writer in Bangalore, shares her service story of when a group of colleagues came together to reimagine a neighborhood lake as a recreational space that could be enjoyed by all in the community.
