The paid leave is part of the company’s Social Service Leave program, known as
corporate America’s first community service sabbatical program that has loaned
more than 500 employees to non-profits since 1971.

communities where our people work and live are values deeply rooted in Xerox’s
culture,” said Ursula Burns, Xerox chairman and chief executive officer.
“Xerox’s Social Service Leave program allows our employees to bring our
business process expertise to non-profit organizations in need. This program
for years has given Xerox people experiences that not only enrich them
personally but also professionally. They come back with renewed energy and
spirit, and we all win.”
