Diageo USVI C.A.R.E.s is an employee-led group created to connect team members with each other and the local communities of the USVI through personal development, volunteerism, family and social events. Diageo USVI C.A.R.E.s is committed to appreciating the diversity among employees of Diageo USVI and the territory at large. In addition to charitable works, Diageo USVI C.A.R.E.s also engages in team-building for employees.
With the full support of the company, a small group of employees launched Diageo USVI C.A.R.E.s in 2012 to support one another on our career journeys in Diageo. The group also established that part of its purpose would be to get together and volunteer in the community.
Among a variety of events, Diageo USVI C.A.R.E.s has held an annual Nemecio “Mecio” Camacho III Bowl for Charity, beach clean-ups, painting projects, school supplies drives, holiday decorating at the Herbert Grigg Home for the Aged and tree planting in Diageo’s neighboring Harvey Community. A peer mentoring program helps employees work toward their career ambitions and additional opportunities within Diageo, and a health and fitness day is hosted each year for employees and their families.
Ensuring our day to day operations are running well is a high priority, of course, but it is also important that our employees have opportunities to grow and lead. Diageo USVI C.A.R.E.s has been an excellent means for doing both.
