Corporate volunteering

Employees at Danske Bank have the opportunity to spend three workdays per year to participate in voluntary work as part of our ‘Time2Give’ program.  

The employees can either choose to volunteer on their own or with their team. They also choose which cause they want want to support and in some countries they can sign up for an event organised by Danske Bank together with a local organisation.

At Danske Bank, colleagues are passionate about making a difference. Both for the customers and for the communities we are part of. Time2Give provides employees with the opportunity to contribute to solving the challenges facing society, and the program also creates greater employee engagement and well-being.
