Giving back to the community has always been a part of who we are as a company. From fundraisers to volunteer events, we combine our efforts as an organization to make a difference where it matters most. To make this year’s holiday season a little brighter for those in need, our offices worked together to support a variety of charitable initiatives throughout the month.
For this month’s charity day, we donated toys to Toys for Tots. Some also made monetary contributions to help purchase gifts for the children. In recognition for their support, participants were able to take part in an ugly sweater contest!
Additionally, our Women’s Network continued their annual tradition of holiday giving by partnering with three regional organizations:
- Safe Horizon: A New York City-based shelter for women and children fleeing abusive home situations.
- New Jersey Department of Child Protection and Permanency (CP&P): CP&P is New Jersey’s child protection and child welfare agency within the Department of Children and Families. Its mission is to ensure the safety, permanency and well-being of children and to support families.
- Cambridge Family & Children’s Services (CFCS): Founded in Cambridge in 1873, CFCS is one of the oldest human services agencies in Greater Boston. Today, CFCS serves children and families in over 100 Massachusetts communities. Its mission is to strengthen & support families so that their children can be raised in loving & nurturing homes, within communities that support them.
Our New York office also participated in a coat drive spearheaded by Shelly McCann, a Director within our Healthcare division. Together, we donated jackets to New York Cares in an effort to help them reach their goal of 150,000 coats to be distributed to New York City’s homeless.
Last, but certainly not least, The Execu|Search Group made a contribution to Feeding America. We recently surveyed our clients and candidates to compile data for our 2017 Hiring Outlook, and as a thank you for completing the survey, we pledged to donate $5 for each survey response. This amounted to a $5,000 donation that will help families throughout the country have a meal this holiday season.
