Community

Our insights create better lives for customers —
our community action creates better lives for everyone

dunnhumby around the world

We’re passionate about improving the lives of customers through better experiences not only where they shop, but where they live, as well.

Our employees demonstrate this passion for, and commitment to, providing a positive contribution to our communities in two ways: by volunteering their time and effort on community betterment projects, and by supporting and contributing to charities selected by dunnhumby employees through events, fund-raising, and donations.

Helping Hands teams in each market help apply these efforts at a global scale, inspiring employees to make a difference in dunnhumby communities around the world. Through our Green Team, we also work to reduce the environmental impact of our activities and operations globally.

To encourage participation, dunnhumby provides one day’s volunteering allowance per person per year in any of our employee engagement programmes.

dunnhumby Bangkok will literally take the clothes off their backs to help make the less fortunate more comfortable

Oslo, Norway

From renovations to relays, dunnhumby Norge has been supporting the Oslo community since 2012. Understanding the importance of a comfortable living environment when you're in a tough spot, the lean, mean, cleaning team kicked things off by sprucing up the SAFIR home, a shelter for recovering addicts, the homeless, and anyone in need of a warm place to stay. Through a day of scrubbing floors and appliances, washing windows, removing rubbish, and redecorating and repairs, the team maintained the home's reputation as a warm and welcoming respite. Most recently, dunnhumby Norge put on their shortest of short shorts and ran the Holmenkoll stafett - the world's longest relay - to support "Right to Play," an organisation which helps youth in disadvantaged neighborhoods through sport and play.

With some digging, careful planting, and systematic watering I succeeded in planting two saplings, one of which had numerous thorns that did not mind pricking me. I managed this with white heels on and did not regret it - corroborating the fact that it was a rewarding experience.
