Reflecting on volunteerism

In 2012, 91 GSK employees spent up to six months with 51 non-profits and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in 26 countries in our PULSE program. These volunteers brought needed expertise to organizations working to address serious societal challenges in the health, education and the environment.

In this blog, PULSE volunteer Binita reflects on her experiences with Jhpiego in Ghana. 

Since the launch of PULSE in 2009, nearly 300 GSK employees from 33 different countries have volunteered with 70 NGOs in 49 countries. PULSE was recently awarded the "Inspiring Practices" award by the International Association for Volunteer Effort (IAVE).
