Working at SC Johnson and becoming part of our Charitable Trust has allowed me to really get involved in helping local causes - something I probably wouldn't have had the opportunity to experience with any other business.
Every year 2 ½% of pre-tax profit from SC Johnson goes to The Charitable Trust - which is a substantial amount of money. For example, in the last quarter over £60,000 was donated by the trust to 23 local causes. The impact this can have in our local community is wonderful and it gives us the opportunity to make a real difference.
I am really proud that we can help groups within a 20 mile radius of our head office. Many of whom don't have the financial backing to reach out to wider audiences to get their message across. Also with the charities being so local we get to meet the people and see the difference our donations are making.
SC Johnson have always looked after the future of their people, their families and the local communities - which personally gives me a real sense of satisfaction and achievement to be a part of it here.
