Ten inducted into UnLtd ‘Hall of Good’

Industry social purpose organisation UnLtd has selected Network Ten as the first inductee into its Hall of Good.

CEO of UnLtd Chris Freel said Ten won because it puts its Social Impact Program at the heart of its culture and has generated over $6.2m for 15 charity partners in just four years.

The Hall of Good is a new initiative by UnLtd which cannot be applied for, but is earned through a demonstrable and impactful commitment to doing good, UnLtd said.

“We work with over 100 companies and countless individuals who go above and beyond their day job to give back. Whilst there are many that are worthy of this recognition, there is one organisation that stands out,” Freel said.

“Network Ten, through its Ten Gives program, has fully embraced the ethos of UnLtd and put their Social Impact Program at the heart of their culture. They are fully committed to driving social impact and have volunteered time, raised awareness, generated funds, provided resources and are now looking at providing jobs to allow young people at risk to chase their dreams.”

He noted Ten had generated $6.2m for 15 charity partners across five states, with $2.1m of that coming from the most recent financial year alone.

Ten’s CEO Paul Anderson said winning the inaugural award was an honour.

“We are humbled and proud to accept this important recognition. The Ten Gives program is now in its fifth year and is a pivotal part of the Ten culture,” he said.

“UnLtd has been instrumental in setting us up for success and guiding us through how to best use our skills and resources to create a positive impact in our society. It’s been very special for us to be working so closely with UnLtd in making a difference for those who need it most.”

The award was presented to Ten last night at the UnLtd: Big Dream event, which raised over $370,000 to support children and young people at risk.
