Team Chicago Solutions values the firm’s philanthropy program, and this year we are continuing our tradition of donating food for Thanksgiving to the community of Chicago. We will be giving to the Lombard Food Pantry in November, and everyone in the office is already getting involved by bringing in canned goods.
While the main reason we give back is that it’s the right thing to do, there are other benefits to supporting a good cause. For instance, fundraisers and food drives boost morale in the workplace. It makes us happy to know that we’ve made a difference in the lives of those who could use a little encouragement, especially during the holiday season. This elevated office attitude leads to greater engagement and motivation as well, creating momentum in our careers and fueling Chicago Solutions’ growth.
Another advantage to being givers is the name we get for being philanthropic. It raises the company’s public profile to have our name linked with giveback events, and we get to connect with business and community leaders, thus building our networks. What’s more, we see our coworkers in a whole new light, away from the workplace and our normal daily routines. Greater unity at work is always the result.
Not only are we doing the right thing through our CSR program, but we’re doing the smart thing, too. Learn more about the benefits of giving back by liking Chicago Solutions on Facebook.
