Impacts of Our Community Engagement Projects

Measurement and continuous improvement are keys to project success. In order to realize impact, we include the consideration of needs assessment for all community engagement efforts and evaluate key metrics for community engagement projects. For more than a decade, the results of employee-led community engagement projects were assessed for a significant subset of projects using a methodology developed by the London Benchmarking Group, which measures input, outputs and impacts.

As seen from the 2023 impacts overview below, our community engagement projects positively impact our communities by helping to enrich the quality of life and increasing community resilience. They also bring benefits to our employees and our company.
