Challenge

The main challenges were to:

  • Organize a global event that would simultaneously take place across 9 different locations.  
  • Connect with nonprofits related to their core business within their desired regions without being on the ground in each area. 
  • Boost employee participation in each location of the program despite a remote working environment.

Solution

By implementing Alaya’s all-in-one purpose platform, Glovo was able to:

  • Access localized volunteer activities to accelerate planning
  • Implement an easy-to-use online platform to centrally manage their CSR activities across their global offices efficiently
  • … and more!
“We decided to organize the first field volunteering activity at Glovo to offer an opportunity for our colleagues to do good beyond the walls of Glovo, while connecting with other teammates and gathering in small groups to share experiences. Alaya helped a lot by connecting us with non-profits and getting specific information and details on the volunteering activities that were necessary for us to then plan the whole Global Volunteering Week.”
