Bengaluru– XL Catlin’s colleagues based in Gurgaon and Bangalore will today participate in the re/insurer’s Global Day of Giving.

The Global Day of Giving is a company-wide employee volunteer day dedicated to supporting the communities in which XL Catlin operates. Since its inception in 2006, XL Catlin colleagues have performed close to 250,000 hours of community service through hundreds of charitable projects in various locations worldwide.

Mike McGavick, XL Catlin’s Chief Executive Officer said, “The Global Day of Giving is a very special event on XL Catlin’s calendar. To us it’s more than simply spending a day volunteering. It’s about investing our time, talent and skills to show our non-profit neighbours, who work tirelessly to improve the communities around us, that we truly appreciate all that they do.”

Derek Nazareth, Head of Global Operations and Country Head of XL Catlin in India said, “This year I will be out participating in projects with the Earth Saviours Foundation, supporting disabled people with their daily activities, spending time with elderly members of our community, and preparing food for those in need. That’s what I think is so fantastic about our day – it goes beyond a financial donation with people getting out into the community to offer their time and energy –our donation is about more than money.”

During today’s event, over 1000 colleagues will be participating in more than 40 charitable projects including: delivering educational activities to socially disadvantaged children, socialising with isolated senior citizens, planting trees, and cleaning community spaces.
