Giving Back

SES’s entire team focuses on charitable work. These activities engage and motivate our colleagues, who then inspire each other to give back to the community where we work. We are proud of our commitment to serve the local communities where we operate. Many of our employees regularly volunteer independently and within the activities organised at company-led events

Time Out to Give Back
In March 2019, Steve Collar, our CEO, announced that all SES employee now have the opportunity to ask for an additional two days per year in addition to their holiday entitlement, to ‘give back’ to society.

Matching donations
SES matches employee donations to charitable organisations including the Red Cross, the Red Crescent, Oxfam, Unicef, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders, and Telecoms Sans Frontières.

In 2018, a group of SES volunteers developed SHARITY, an employeebased charity designed to support small and tailored development projects around the world. SHARITY collected over EUR 10,000 through its “1 charity per month” programme.

In 2019, a group of SES employees started GEAR UP!, which is an internal shop aimed at raising funds for charities around the world. The shop provides all employees the opportunity to buy corporate SES items and apparel at a fair market price for comparable products. By doing so, it collects funds for charity. In addition, SES matches all profits generated by purchases, increasing the impact of their charity contribution.
