JB Hi-Fi Helping Hands
JB Hi-Fi recognises its’ responsibility to give back to the community, so in November 2008, JB Hi-Fi founded the “Helping Hands” workplace giving program. This program allows all JB Hi-Fi employees to donate to 9 charity partners, through regular payroll deductions. With JB Hi-Fi matching staff contributions dollar-for-dollar, we effectively double the positive impact to our charities & community.
Over the past eight years, JB Hi-Fi has raised over $10 million for our charity partners. This money has gone to help those who are less fortunate or struggling with illness. We have almost 5,000 staff members contributing to the program each week, which is 72% of our workforce nationally.
In 2016, the Helping Hands program received two workplace excellence awards – Best Workplace Giving Program, and Most Innovative Partnership with RedKite.
JB Hi-Fi is also a proud member of The Australian Charities Fund and supports their goal of reaching $1 million donors participating in workplace giving by 2020.
