PRESS RELEASE – Employees of St. Lucia’s leading retailer of the world’s best brands in Electronics and Furniture products, Courts, made time to volunteer their time and skills as part of activities surrounding the company’s “Volunteer Week 2016”.
The initiative which is being held for the first time by the super store was launched with the primary objective of mobilizing staff in every Country where they operate. Whilst the company is known and appreciated for their commitment to continue bringing value home, Courts sees this initiative as an avenue to strengthen relationships within the communities, improve employee commitment and retention as well as to reinforce the company’s corporate image.
The “Gordon and Walcott Memorial School”, “Marian Home” and “Comfort Bay” are the three institutions selected by the company for volunteer week 2016. The volunteers, whom included Unicomer employees, teachers and parents from the school, as well as members of the community, worked hand in hand to complete the selected projects. At the “Gordon and Walcott Memorial School”, the volunteers refurbished, repainted and pressure washed various sections in an effort to beautify the school. The residents of the Marian Home and Comfort Bay respectively, were treated to manicures and pedicures among other special activities scheduled for the day by the volunteers.
Volunteer Week 2016, was the platform that was necessary to give employees the space for them to use their time to benefit the community. This initiative coincides with the business’s strategic commitment to workplace volunteerism and civic engagement by offering outstanding services and programs.
The management and staff of Unicomer (Saint Lucia) Limited trading as Courts, would like to extend sincere gratitude to the principal and staff of the Gordon and Walcott Memorial School, parents and volunteers as well as the management and residents of the Marian and Comfort Bay Homes. The company would like to extend further gratitude to our employees who volunteered their time and skill in celebration of ‘Volunteer Week 2016”. Without your support, this initiative would not have been a success.
