Two weeks ago, we were honored to host the President of Israel, Mr. Shimon Peres, at the Intel Israel campus. Intel Corporation Vice President and Global Corporate Affairs Manager Shelly Esque, who arrived in Israel for a visit, welcomed President Peres and presented him with our 2011 Corporate Social Responsibility Report. Watch video highlights from the visit here.
The Intel Israel CSR report, which was officially launched last week, is a localized version of the Corporate CSR Report, and its purpose is to shed light on our community service work in Israel. President Peres’ visit was a major highlight in an already exciting year for Intel Israel. With more than 40% of our 8,200 employees volunteering within the community, 17 million NIS contributed to education, academics and community programs in Israel, and more than 450,000 children taking part in the Intel® Learn program, there is indeed much to report (and be proud of).
The success of Intel Israel’s CSR program over the past year (and years past) also inspired us to enhance our social media presence. We developed a new Corporate Responsibility tab on Intel Israel’s Facebook page, which serves as a wonderful platform for presenting our CSR report in electronic format and allows us to reach new crowds. The new tab also allows anyone who is interested in what we do to connect with us directly through “Feedbook”, an exciting new app that serves as a virtual guest book. It so happened that President Peres was our very first Feedbook visitor, and he left us a few warm words. We really could not have asked for more. Check out his post in Hebrew.
