Employees can take part with a monthly donation, deducted directly from the pay-slip, to the financing of various NGO projects. Currently, employees can choose between:
The “la Caixa” Foundation, through its International Cooperation Area, monitors the projects and safeguards the destination of the contributions made.
To promote these initiatives, there is a Solidarity Space on the corporate intranet. This contains information on these programs as well as on other more specific actions, concerning humanitarian catastrophes, which employees can support. Staff can register on the programs from this space, making the procedure easier and quicker.
