Optus named in the Top 5 companies to give back in 2019

We're so proud that Optus was again named in the Top 40 Best Workplaces to Give Back in 2019 by GoodCompany.
We maintained our position from last year, placing fifth and we were the only Telco in the Top 10.

In FY19, our people filled over 2,300 volunteer roles and, together with the company, we collectively invested $8.72 million to support the community.
In addition, Optus and our volunteers helped raise over $12 million to support Australian farmers affected by drought.

Last winter, we helped those in need during the coldest part of the year - thousands of children, families and elderly affected by homelessness.
We partnered with Optus charity partners Oz Harvest, Mission Australia and Rural Aid for our Optus Winter Appeal to provide volunteering opportunities and, for the month of August 2018, Optus double-matched donations made to these charities.
We rose to the challenge:
  • We raised $38,000 for Rural Aid and Optus’ double matching of $76,000 amounts to a total of $114,000
  • We raised $1,020 for Mission Australia and Optus double matched to make a total of $3,060
  • 162 of our people volunteered for the Channel9 drought relief telethon call centre contributing 803 hours of taking pledges
  • 100 people in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra and Brisbane volunteered at OzHarvest.
