The APAC region is a key focus for Zendesk with paid customer accounts growing by over 35 percent year-on-year to end December 2016.Zendesk's Neighbor Foundation Programme Apart from expanding its business activities in Singapore, Zendesk is also stepping up its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts, with the launch of the Zendesk Neighbor Foundation in-region, partnering with the Salvation Army and Cycling Without Age (CWA) to support local community initiatives. As part of the launch, the Zendesk Neighbor Foundation donated trishaws to the local CWA team which works to break age barriers by pairing seniors with volunteer cyclists to share a bike ride. "The launch of the Singapore chapter of our global Zendesk Neighbor Foundation and extension of the Cycling Without Age initiative continues our commitment to supporting the communities in which we operate and is a key aspect of the culture of Zendesk," said Tiffany Apczynski, VP public policy and social impact, Zendesk. "This year, Zendesk Neighbor Foundation is planning to give approximately $115,000 in grants in Singapore, and the local team has committed to 1,000 volunteer hours to support local causes." Modeled after Zendesk's CSR program at its San Francisco headquarters, the Singapore community volunteer hour commitments will focus on charities that promote workforce development and technical literacy, and improve education and professional development for underserved youth.
