Our Work in the Community
Involvement in the local community is of paramount importance to Layer3. We consider ourselves committed to communities in the local area and are very aware and focused on our national and international responsibilities.
We believe that helping the local community is not just something we choose to do but is also an important role of our company. We understand that local businesses and communities are closely linked and that we can have a significant positive impact on communities as a whole.
We have played active role and continue to do so in contributing to these communities both through direct financial support and participation in activities organized both by the firm and by bodies such Non-Governmental Organizations in the health and community development sectors.
