Why your company should support community service by your team

Smart thoughts from Blinds.com CEO Jay Steinfeld:

Keep charity and community service at the forefront. It’s not something you do just for publicity and obligation.

It trains people’s minds to think about improving other people’s lives. They’re going to improve customers’ lives, co-workers’ lives, and their own lives.

From Inc. Magazine, Oct., 2011.

    Great reminder, Andy, especially at this time of year. For many nonprofits, the holiday season represents 40% of their annual revenue.

    We’ve being doing project for years, but this year decided to give every staff at least one day off a year to work on a community projects.

    The feedback has been amazing and it feels great. Even if it’s just painting lines on a hopscotch court, the value of giving is undeniable

    The interesting thing is it doesn’t really cost the company much. In any job there are quiet times of year. We just made those slow days available to staff to give back. A change of scene for them and a win win all around.
