About Hanmi Neighbor Volunteer Service Program
Hanmi Bank's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, Hanmi Neighbor, is expanding its service to provide opportunities for us to be more directly involved in our community. Our newest initiative, Hanmi Neighbor Volunteer Service Program (Hanmi Neighbor VSP), is a first-of-its-kind volunteer program in the Korean-American banking industry that is driven by individual employee participation rather than corporate organized events.
Hanmi Neighbor VSP allows employees to take paid time-off from work (i.e., volunteering DURING business hours) for up to a maximum of 16 hours per year when volunteering at the approved non-profit organizations. These paid volunteer service hours are available for all associates and can be used any time throughout the year in any increments.
Our Core Value
Hanmi Neighbor VSP is founded upon our associates’ concerns and beliefs about volunteerism. When developing the program, we conducted a survey that revealed our associates are most interested in helping organizations focused on Youth, Education, Health, Senior and Community Development. Hanmi Neighbor VSP will avoid volunteer efforts that are directly linked to religious and/or political causes.
Volunteering: A Rewarding Experience
In efforts to commend our employees' spirit of volunteerism, we have created a unique recognition/incentive initiative. Upon completion of 16 "Neighbor Hours" (volunteer hours) per year, we will offer either a monetary donation or a goods/service donation to the non-profit organization of their choice. It is our way of showing our thanks and appreciation for being dedicated employees and responsible citizens.
In addition to donation incentives, a Good Neighbor Award will be presented annually to further recognize associates who have particularly excelled in their volunteer works. Programs such as Neighborhood Mixer (volunteer network event), Block Party (branch/department volunteer recognition event) and My Neighbor Story (feature story of individual associate’s volunteer experience) will continue to be introduced throughout the year to motivate and encourage our associates to participate in Hanmi Neighbor VSP.
