Community engagement and volunteerism are important aspects of Northern Trust’s culture. Our employees care about their local communities and understand they have a role to play in making them stronger. Northern Trust offers two paid volunteer days per year for employees to give back to the charity of their choice.
During the 2021 Achieving Greater Together annual month of service, employees collectively gave over 12,000 volunteer hours to more than 800 charities globally. Building on Northern Trust's legacy of service, for every one hour of volunteering performed during Achieving Greater Together, Northern Trust committed to donating 50 meals to organizations fighting hunger. On behalf of our employees volunteer service, approximately 602,500 meals will be donated to hunger relief organizations around the globe.
