The sole purpose of the club is to inculcate empathy and benevolence among the employees of the organization as well as covering wider scopes of generous activities that were unable to accommodate within the corporate social responsibility budget of the company. Every benevolent activity was measured in terms of voluntary hours which were further categorized at the individual as well as organizational level. Under this, employees observed Public Transport Day, Clean Workstation Day, Share a Meal Day and so on.
