Community Involvement

Community Involvement

Mobilising Pictet’s most valuable resource, our people, through hands-on community engagement is how we maximise impact in the places where we work and have offices.

Local volunteering

Globally, volunteering activities are coordinated by dedicated committees of employees across business lines that identify local engagement opportunities, with the support of the Pictet Group Foundation.

The Foundation also supports humanitarian interventions globally through organisations that have the capacity to respond locally to complex emergencies. A selected project is profiled below. 

Colis du Cœur

Colis du Cœur provides support for people in precarious situations in the Swiss canton of Geneva. Each week, supported by more than 200 volunteers, teams distribute food aid and necessities to nearly 7,000 people and their families.

COVID-19 had an outsized impact on the work of Colis du Cœur, with a sharp rise in the number of people seeking help, leading to a shift to pre-packaged parcels. The volunteering committee of Pictet coordinates staff engagement activities in Geneva and sent 118 Pictet employees between 2022 and 2023 to help with parcel packing and distribution. This was especially well received during the summer months when the organisation tends to need increased support.

Families helped in the Geneva area every week by Colis du Cœur

The people we help have low incomes and struggle to make ends meet. The contribution of Colis du Cœur is a welcome boost to ease daily lives.
