Liberty Global starts USD 4 mln employee assistance fund

Thursday 9 April 2020 | 09:26 CET | News
Liberty Global has announced the creation of a USD 4 million employee assistance fund for employees hit by the covid-19 pandemic. The fund will be available to all of the company's 27,000 employees spread out across eight countries. They will all be eligible to confidentially apply for assistance, via an online portal. The programme will get its initial funding from the Liberty Global executive team, but CEO Mike Fries hopes the Global Response Fund continues to grow in size and serve as a model for future support within the company.
