PULSE

The PULSE Volunteer Partnership Program empowers GSK's high-performing employees to use their professional expertise while working with one of our partner non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to make a significant impact in impoverished communities around the world. Typical assignments last three to six months.

With their skills and knowledge, PULSE volunteers work to build positive, sustainable change within the NGO's programming and service delivery in developed and developing countries. PULSE is an integral part of GSK's commitment to our work with communities around the world; it will help to build solutions and improvements across the health, education and the environmental sectors.

In 2013, 100 GSK employees received long-term volunteer assignments (up to six months) with 46 non-profit and non-governmental organisations throughout 35 countries. These employees bring needed expertise to organisations working to address serious health challenges through GSK’s skill-based volunteer program, PULSE. When PULSE volunteers return to GSK with strengthened leadership skills and a broader world view, they act as catalysts to change the company for the better.
