The HLB network celebrated the success of its first global Corporate Social Responsibility initiative in June this year.

HLB marked its 50th anniversary through its support of local and international community projects for #HLBCommunities Day. The initiative saw HLB staff around the world collectively volunteer 8,497 hours through 1,320 participants across 42 community projects.

Firms took part in projects including donating time to after school programs, maintaining outdoor spaces such as local gardens, beaches and school facilities, through to volunteering with the elderly and at food banks.

HLB Mann Judd Australasian Association chairman, Tony Fittler, says the day was just one example of the network joining together in recognition of the greater good and giving back to those in need.

“It was wonderful to see so many within our network recognise our collective obligation to give back to communities who need it most.

“It’s an initiative that has the potential to get bigger and better every year, and we aim to consolidate on the fantastic efforts from this year, for next year and beyond,” he said.
