WEX Australia’s giving back committee is very active—both across the business and in the larger Melbourne community. Some recent initiatives have included a blood drive and working with the Breast Cancer Network Australia to package boxes for a Mother’s Day event. Employees are also encouraged to volunteer whenever they want with WEX offering two paid days a year to volunteer with a charity of their choice.
To engage its employees and build community, WEX's Melbourne office organizes an array of activities. The office has its own social club that plans monthly events—including the usual mid-year and end-of-year celebrations, free lunches, and the team favorite—an annual chocolate fountain. Sonic Boom, WEX's global wellness program, also brings employees together through events like a seminar on making the most of the work day and an International Women’s Day discussion.
