Staff Social Responsibility
The QI Group’s philanthropic activities are an inherent part of the fundamentals on which the company has been built on. The company believes strongly that giving back to the community is not just the prerogative of the corporate foundation and inculcates within its employees the spirit of giving. The Foundation works closely with the employees of the QI Group and involves them in its various initiatives.
VF Twelve is a celebration of staff birthdays with those who are less fortunate. QI staff who are celebrating their birthday in a particular month are invited to share their special day with children from various welfare homes or community centres in Malaysia. Employees get to spend the day with the children at various educational and entertaining venues with fun activities and a big cake. Each child is paired up with a child and they participate in the activities lined up, working together to build friendship, trust and understanding.

The Ambassadorship is awarded as a recognition and acknowledgement of QI staff who walk and talk the concept of Raise Yourself To Help Mankind (RYTHM) in their daily life.
