Employee-Based Programs

Engaging Our Community

We undertake a wide range of philanthropic programs that benefit our communities including supporting employee-driven philanthropy.

Employee-Driven Philanthropy

Takeda encourages employee giving through support for various programs:

         •     Matching Gifts Program: Takeda will match each employee’s contribution of up to $5,000 every year.               
         •     Individual Volunteer Awards: Takeda provides grants to the organizations at which our employees volunteer.

Together, Takeda and its employees donated more than $1.8 million to community organizations this past fiscal year.

Employee Volunteerism

Our employees are the most important component behind our commitment to the community. Takeda employees at all levels contribute countless volunteer hours each year; serving on boards, acting as mentors, and participating in community activities. We commend their exceptional community service efforts, which include:

         •   Rebuilding Together Day
              Since 2003, Takeda has partnered with Rebuilding Together to revitalize communities
              by donating dollars and hours to repair and renovate homes in the Chicagoland area. In
              2012, more than 40 employees volunteered during National Rebuilding Day.

         •   Takeda Cares Day
              This year, more than 700 employees participated in the fourth annual employee and
              community event to raise $73,500 to benefit three Chicagoland non-profit

         •   Holiday Giving Activities
              Each year, we provide employees an opportunity to support various charity organizations during the holiday               months. Programs for the 2012 season included a virtual food drive with the Northern Illinois Food Bank, providing               gifts for families through the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, and donating teddy bears for children in               local hospitals through the Starlight Midwest Foundation.

         •   Volunteer Match Website For Employees
              We partner with a service that helps match employees with local volunteer opportunities that fit their interests and               schedules.

         •   Community Service
                   •  Two Days to Serve: Takeda employees receive two days of paid time off (PTO) each year to use for                               volunteer activities of their choice.
                   •  Department Initiatives: Several departments engage in team building activities which include charitable                       giving opportunities or community service events.
