SINGAPORE, Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Chubb announced today its fourth annual Regional Day of Service in the Asia Pacific region, during which employees from its life and general insurance operations will dedicate a portion of their day during the week of 7-11 November to help the communities in which they live and work.
A tradition which began in 2012, the annual Regional Day of Service reflects Chubb's firm belief that positive contributions to communities return long-lasting benefits to society and the company's employees and business.
Over 1,000 employees in 12 territories will be taking part in a myriad of volunteer projects focused on increasing educational opportunities for underprivileged students, as well as improving the livelihood for individuals and communities. The participating markets include Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
This year's Day of Service activities for the underprivileged include: educational programs; skills coaching; restoration of premises; fund-raising, as well as donation of books and basic necessities.
Mr. Paul McNamee, Regional President of Chubb's general insurance operations in Asia Pacific, said, "Giving back to the community is an integral part of our corporate culture and this year's Regional Day of Service is especially momentous as it marks our first big company-wide event for employees as the new Chubb.
