Here at BrainStorm, we are not only changing the way the world works, but we are changing the world by giving back. We ranked #5 on the list of Fortune's 50 Best Workplaces for Giving Back 2016 and we couldn't feel any more flattered!
To select companies for this list, Fortune partnered with Great Place to Work® to survey employees on how proud they are of their impact on the community, the difference they feel they make, and if their work is more than "just a job." Also, the companies considered were those who provide paid time off for volunteering, contribute generously to charitable causes through corporate donations, and use employee fund-matching programs.
Here are a few charitable ways BrainStorm exemplifies the qualities mentioned above:
1. Corporate Giving Committe
BrainStorm's Corporate Giving Committee is an employee-led initiative that plans out-of-office, service-oriented activities every other month. Some of our recent activities have included:
2. Purpose Portfolio
In December, BrainStorm launched an exciting new initiative called Purpose Portfolio, which allows employees an opportunity to easily support worthy causes through automatic paycheck deductions that get donated directly to a cause of their choice (see image below). Within 4 hours of this program being announced at BrainStorm, 60 percent of our employees signed up.
3. The "Holiday 100"
One of our favorite parts of the holiday season is the "Holiday 100," an opportunity for each individual PropellerHead to give to the causes they feel passionately about. Each employee receives one hundred dollars which can be donated to a charity of their choice or used to do good for someone in need. We love hearing about the diverse and creative ways that the BrainStorm team uses their allotment to make a difference.
BrainStorm strives to change the way the world works, but we're also striving to change the world by giving back. A passion for serving our local and global communities is just one of the defining characteristics that make a true PropellerHead.
