Rivian engaged employees in impactful volunteer work through WeHero's remote & hybrid volunteer experiences!
Rivian is on a mission to keep the world adventurous forever. This goes for the Electric Adventure Vehicles they build, and the curious, courageous employees they seek to attract.
To highlight Rivian's focus on corporate volunteering and sustainability, Rivian wanted to plan corporate volunteer projects for their teams.
Because of Rivian's focus on sustainability, we built a program focused on planting trees. We partnered with One Tree Planted to help employees get millions of trees in the ground across the globe.
Employees working in Rivian's offices or factories received WeHero boxes with the materials from our tree nursery partners. Remote employees received individual boxes with their needed materials. We offset 100% of the carbon emissions from the shipments and the packaging was made of 70% recycled material.
We coordinated a single educational and team building event for all employees to join regardless of their location. Each participant planted 2 trees during the event that they were responsible for caring for afterwards. In addition, we made donations to One Tree Planted so they would plant 8 more trees for each participant.
WeHero and One Tree Planted are on a mission to get employees educated about deforestation and supporting tree planting efforts.
Through Rivian's efforts, hundreds of employees were educated on this work and empowered to get trees in the ground and continue making an impact.
