Manulife employees across the world are giving back to the communities they live in.

The company is giving each of its 35,000 workers the equivalent of $50 Canadian in their local currency to 'pay it forward' and create acts of kindness during the holidays.

"2020 has been a difficult year for many individuals, families and communities around the world - it’s challenged us to prioritize health and safety and adopt new ways of connecting and supporting each other," Manulife President and Chief Executive Officer Roy Gori said in a news release.

Manulife is doing so instead of hosting company year end celebrations, or handing out gifts.

Employees are being encouraged to share their stories of support on social media using #ManulifeActofKindness. 

Manulife has offices in Waterloo Region.
