‘70 Days of Giving’ will see the consultancy’s organising various initiatives designed to give back to the communities it works in
Project and progamme management consultancy Faithful+Gould is celebrating 70 years in operation with a scheme dubbed ‘70 Days of Giving’.
The initiative will see the company’s employees organising various initiatives designed to give back to the communities it works in, while simultaneously fundraising for several global and local charities.
The company also celebrated the occasion with its employees through regional fun-days, and games and activities to encourage employee collaboration and team bonding. The firm said it wanted to thank its employees for their hand in making the company a success.
Campbell Gray, Faithful+Gould’s Middle East managing director commented, “We are very proud to celebrate our 70th anniversary this year, and it’s inspiring to look back on our journey. Faithful+Gould started as a four-man quantity surveying business in the UK and now, 70 years later, here in the Middle East, we are appointed on some of the region’s largest, most prestigious projects as programme and project managers. It really is the people of F+G that have made our company so successful and we are all excited to commemorate this important milestone in our history by sharing that success through giving back.”
The campaign is global, and each of Faithful+Gould’s offices has chosen their own charity to support. So far, the UAE office has completed eight days of giving, where employees took part in the 5KM long Mercithon walk, raised money for a colleague returning to his home country under unfortunate circumstances, and volunteered to help-out at the Al Noor ‘Hope for Children Funfair’.
The UAE office is also looking to donate blood, organise a charity football tournament and hold dress down days in the near future. The company is sharing its progress on social media channels with the hashtags #70givingback and #70celebrate, and is also asking for opportunities that they can get involved in.
Faithful+Gould was originally founded in March 1947, and has today grown to 2,400 worldwide staff. The company has several offices across the Middle East with 500 staff.
