We like to give back to our community. And after talking to our team, we discovered they do too, but they don’t always have the time or resources.
That’s why we implemented the “give back” portion of our Employee of the Month program. Every month, we take a percentage of our net sales and give half of it to the Employee of the Month to donate to a charity of his or her choice. We keep the other half in reserve for other charities, or for people who call for donations.
So far, the team really loves it. It’s cool to see what kind of organizations our people are choosing. The last couple months we’ve donated to the Love Pit, an organization for pit bulls, and to the Children’s Medical Center.
We haven’t announced our Employee of the Month yet for this month, but I can’t wait to see what charity they choose. (You can see pictures of those pit bulls on our Facebook page, by the way!)
