On November 16, the Activision Blizzard workforce and their families began participating in the 7th annual Veterans Day of Service. Typically a day of service that sees volunteers contributing outside the office in their communities, this year’s event was a week-long affair that operated from people’s homes due to the global pandemic.
Activision Blizzard recognized the need to give back to veterans now more than ever, leading to a renewed commitment to maintain the annual Veterans Day of Service, though in a slightly altered form.
“Veterans Day of Service has been reinvented as a COVID-safe, work from home volunteer experience,” says Diana Diller, Senior Manager of Internal Events and Experiential Marketing at Activision. “As the planning process was underway for VDOS – which has become Veterans WEEK of Service for 2020 – local guidelines from state to state and country to country changed, so everything planned was safe and secure, no matter what, aligned with the overall company care for our workforce.”
