Giving Back

The company is committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and supporting community practices.

Savills considers requests for assistance from various charitable organisations throughout the year and employees are also encouraged to nominate charities that are personal to them. These requests are assessed by the CSR Steering Committee and an overall plan is developed for the year. Such requests may take the form of fund raising donations but the Company’s preference is to find opportunities for employees to use their knowledge, skills and experience by working with the charity in question.

We believe that providing opportunities for “Savillians” to ‘give back’ will benefit their well-being, morale and build a collaborative and inspired team. We can also see that volunteering can provide leadership opportunities for employees which can increase staff performance and fulfilment.

A selection of some worthwhile initiatives that we run annually include;

Bake Sale and Rugby Blitz

Savills hosts a bake sale annually in order to support local Charites. This is a great initiative as everybody can get involved, and there is great competition between staff on who can produce the best baked goods! Over the years we have raised much needed funds for charities such as; Focus Ireland and the Childhood Cancer foundation.

Giving Tree

Focus Ireland

Various activities

Beloved Takeover On Friday June 26th 2015 a team from Savills Ireland took over Focus Ireland’s Beloved Charity Shop in Malahide, to raise as much funds in one day as possible for homelessness. An important part of this day was for the Company as a whole to gather as much good quality stock as possible for the Savills team to maximise sales on the day. This was both a fantastic fundraising and team building experience.
