TAIPEI, Taiwan (November 2, 2020)–Over a hundred books were collected in a book drive as leading global outsourcing provider, TaskUs, celebrated the third anniversary of its Taiwan site, Adventures Intelligence.

The book drive was a symbolic activity as part of the company’s week-long celebration aptly entitled, Open the Next Chapter, recognizing teammates’ hard work and contributions, and preparing them for the future.

Collected books were given to the Kuen Tai Cultural and Educational Foundation, along with personalized letters from TaskUs teammates to the children receiving the books.

“At TaskUs, we give much importance to pursuing one’s passions and dreams. Purpose beyond the office plays a big role in our culture. As we turn a new chapter in Taiwan, we hope to equally contribute to the growth of the Taiwanese community,” said Catherine Wang, TaskUs Adventures Intelligence Vice President for Operations.

Donated books will go to primary and secondary students residing in rural areas. The book drive aimed to broaden children’s horizons through the gift of reading and education. 

Meanwhile, kicking off the week’s activities last October 26 were games, activities, and a feast for teammates to celebrate TaskUs’s core value of “Work Hard, Have Fun”.

Celebrity guest speakers also graced the celebration to share their views on the company’s core values and touched on topics such as self-improvement and striving for excellence.
