The scope of our Corporate Citizenship program in Malaysia is broad-ranging and involves many of our employees through volunteering, mentoring, performing pro bono work and coordinating the relationships with the charities we support.
Kuala Lumpur Rat Race
Each year, a team or two comprising Accenture “rats” together with “cheerleaders” and supporters brave the rush-hour traffic, rain or shine, to show true Accenture spirit at the Kuala Lumpur Rat Race—Corporate Malaysia’s unique charity event. The nation’s largest corporate organizations enthusiastically send their CEOs to make a dash for the finishing line in the CEO 1km race. All other employees compete in a 4.5km run while dressed in corporate attire and costumes depicting the theme of the race, i.e., Going Green. The event continues to be a huge success. All proceeds from the race go to selected charitable organizations.
Terry Fox Run
Accenture employees, together with thousands of other participants, turn up for the Marathon of Hope run at the Lake Gardens each year to run to generate money to be given to charity organizations. Apart from volunteering for organizational tasks, Accenture also donates a lump sum to the selected beneficiaries. The funds are collected from employees, friends of Accenture and Accenture’s Corporate Social Responsibility fund.
Accenture supports MERCY Malaysia in bringing relief to disaster zones around the world. MERCY Malaysia is a nonprofit organization focused on providing medical relief and sustainable health-related development for vulnerable communities. Accenture has in recent years donated RM100,000 to help with its operations and administration, as well as organized its first Accenture Charity Hunt and raised a total of RM97,110.92 for the MERCY Humanitarian Fund.
In 2009, Accenture employees joined their efforts to raise funds for MERCY Malaysia’s Gaza Humanitarian Fund.
In 2010, RM24,000 was collected from Accenture employees and channeled to MERCY Malaysia to help Pakistani flood victims rebuild their lives and recover.
Accenture’s Kuala Lumpur Recreation Club spearheads disaster relief donation drives as part of its ongoing efforts to mobilize the community of Accenture employees to give generously to less fortunate communities. The team has since collected thousands in cash and supplies ranging from food, clothing, books and other items to aid victims of the tsunami, Johor flood, Bangladesh, and Myanmar disasters.
Accenture Development Partnerships
Accenture is leading the charge in corporate volunteerism through the Accenture Development Partnerships, a nonprofit program that delivers consulting services to organizations and communities in developing countries ranging from the Balkans to Vietnam. Accenture Malaysia joins 17 other countries in this “giving back” program where employees have the opportunity to take a sabbatical for three to six months and accept a 50 percent reduction in salary in order to offer their high-quality, consulting services in concert with nongovernmental organizations and small and medium-sized enterprises in developing communities.
