F5 honored with a Governor’s Volunteer Service Award

 April 30, 2020

Employees working at F5 Networks enjoy the opportunity to give back to their communities through volunteering hours - and their hard work has been recognized through a Governor’s Volunteer Service Award.

The award is given to F5 from Governor of Washington, Jay Inslee. The accolade recognizes Washington’s volunteers for the service contributions they make to communities across the US state in the past calendar year. Recipients are identified through a statewide nomination process and selected by a panel of Serve Washington Commissioners based off of their outstanding commitment to volunteerism, accomplishments and the impact of their service on the community.

F5ers get paid time off for volunteering

Those working for F5 have volunteer hours available from the company to help them support the needs of local charities. This means they are entitled to paid time off for volunteering.

Through the Global Good program at F5, employees can realize their passion for doing good in whatever ways work best for them. In addition to volunteer hours, F5's corporate social responsibility initiatives include donation matching; opportunities to participate in localized philanthropic campaigns, grant committees, the Global Good Ambassador program; and Community Impact Grants.
