Volunteering and giving are important parts of our Vertex values. The Vertex Volunteers program supports employees’ contributions of time and expertise to nonprofit organizations. Each year, employees participate in our global Day of Service and join together to help our communities. In a single day in 2019, more than 1,200 employees in 14 countries volunteered nearly 4,500 hours and supported 82 nonprofit organizations. A focus of the day is science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) education projects, including going on-site to schools to conduct STEAM projects with the goal of increasing students’ interest in science.

Team Vertex is about camaraderie and connecting with the patient community. We support events like races and walks that help patients and their families. Our employees enthusiastically take part in these events.
