Nearly 100 Liberty Mutual Insurance Employees qualified for the President’s Volunteer Service Award, from the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) and administered by Points of Light. Liberty Mutual Insurance Chairman and CEO David Long announced the awards at a ceremony held at the company’s Boston office to celebrate the employees’ extraordinary dedication to community service.  The President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) is the premier volunteer awards program, encouraging citizens to live a life of service through presidential gratitude and national recognition.  

“Philanthropy is at our core, both as a business and as individuals,” said Mr. Long.  “Together with our employees, Liberty Mutual contributed $45 million last year toward vitally important nonprofit causes across the country.  We are especially thankful to all of our Presidential Volunteer Service Award winners for volunteering over 100 hours.  These Volunteer with Liberty participants embody our philanthropic mission of improving communities and helping people during their times of greatest need.” 

Each of the Liberty Mutual employees who received the President’s Volunteer Service Award tracked their volunteer hours through the Volunteer with Liberty program, one of three legs of the company’s Liberty Torchbearers program that also includes Give with Liberty, the employee giving program, and Serve with Liberty, the global company-wide day of community service.  Volunteer with Liberty showcases employees’ commitment to the mission of the nonprofits they share their time with outside of work.

The program allows employees to share information with colleagues about their volunteer activities for community nonprofit organizations where they spend their own time.  It also allows them to log their hours and become eligible for a quarterly drawing of $250 that they give to the nonprofit of their choice.  Employees who log over 100 hours become part of the company’s Torchbearers 100 Club, who receive $2,500 to give to their favorite charity.

In 2018, employees supported the Liberty Torchbearers by:

  • Completing over 2,700 Serve with Liberty projects
  • Supporting over 7,800 charities through Give with Liberty
  • Logging nearly 35,000 hours through Volunteer with Liberty
