In the community

WGE are dedicated to supporting the community in which our people live and work.

We made a decision to redirect all monies traditionally spent on corporate gifts and other such expenses into financial contributions to causes and community projects that they’re supporting. A radical overhaul of how our promotional and marketing dollars are spent has seen a move towards supporting initiatives that significantly contribute to the betterment of the community.

Each year a number of carefully selected projects are chosen that will involve the use of our people’s skills, talents and time while also making a financial contribution to these projects.
