Dell: Employees Volunteered 707,000 Hours In FY2013

It's not a surprise to those in Texas, but it looks like employees at Dell have been very busy volunteering for local charities, nonprofits, and other organizations. Round Rock-based Dell, as part of its corporate reponsibility reporting for its fiscal year 2013 (which ended February 1st), mentioned that its employees volunteered 707,000 hours in its last fiscal year, well above the company's goal of 500,000 hours. Dell did not give a breakdown across its locations of those hours--the 707,000 hours included the company's global operations--but a significant number of those volunteer hours were undoubtedly for local Round Rock, Austin, Plano, and Dallas organizations.
