Last month, Commvault is taking part in Movember, an annual global charity event to raise awareness of some of the biggest health issues facing men, such as prostate, testicular cancer, and mental health issues. Movember, an annual movement which started in Australia, sees men taking action by growing beards, facial hair on a clean slate for 30 days.
Employees of Commvault are pitching in on this fundraising effort by growing moustaches and beards, sponsored by their colleagues and loved ones. With a growing number of over 40 members from countries such as Australia, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Korea, donations are pouring in and coming close to the SGD$10,000 mark, and the figure continues to climb steadily.
Not to be outdone, the women of Commvault are getting in on Movember action and showing support for the men in their own unique way – by getting moustaches painted on their nails! “It’s a fun and special way of showing solidarity with the men,” says Jezmynn Koh, Director of Communications, Asia Pacific. “We are proud to work as one team to tackle men’s health issues, to create change and empower them to feel confident to take action for their health”.
