"We all enjoyed a tour of TUS Park following lunch," shared one among Veritas' Beijing HR team of their afternoon with RARL organization students for Global Give Back Day 2018.
In support of Veritas’ HR Global Give Back Day, on May 18th, our HR team out of Beijing hosted a day of activities for the RARL organization – a Chinese NGO dedicated to providing care for children with special needs and supporting their parents.
The Beijing team developed an accessible, engaging computer science-focused workshop for students of RARL. Here, two students share the programming experience with Xing Hui, Veritas staff, and the grandfather of one student.To prepare for the day’s efforts, employees from Beijing CPO, HR, and WFO planned a series of activities to share with the children, including an accessible, engaging computer science-focused workshop. “Everyone on our team helped design the activity content, arranging the necessary materials, which helped make the event a great success,” shared one among Beijing HR, further expressing, “Everybody had a strong sense of achievement by contributing to this event.”
The game, ping pong, played by Veritas staff and the children of RARL was one of the children’s favorite activities of the day.The computing activities were a hit with the children and their parents, too; one young participant from RARL stated, “Programming is not as difficult as I thought, it is fun! I made it.” And both the children and their parents were interested in mastering the basic programming tasks presented by Veritas.
Veritas engineer Wei Lin, alongside four other Veritas engineers, provided programming guidance throughout the day with the students of RARL.In 2018, across our global offices, those of us on Veritas Human Resources teams are completing nearly 4,000 hours of philanthropic work in support of our local communities on behalf of Veritas Technologies.
At an organization dedicated to its people, HR Global Give Back Day is just a part of what makes #LifeAtVeritas so good.
