Creating a Culture of Thanks

By on November 25, 2013



While many great companies know that it’s better to give to their employees and the communities than to receive, how de they go about creating a culture that promotes being thankful?  Below are this Chick’s picks for  great companies creating a culture of thanks:

  • Nice Grants at SmallBox– Sounds nice, right?  Well the people over at SmallBox thought so too and that’s why this company awards a no-strings attached grant to community members doing great things.
  • Recruit 4 Cause – Aligning HR and social causes, this job opportunity website serves both for-profit and non-profit organizations.  Recruit 4 Cause is committed to allocating 10% of the cost from each job posting to their charitable partner.  The company posting the job has the ability to select the charitable partner it would like to donate to.
  • Hunger at SendGrid – Hunger, one of the 4H corporate values at SendGrid, isn’t celebrated only on Thanksgiving; it’s celebrated daily with lots of company provided food, charitable contributions and seeking personal and professional development outside of work.
  • Project Blight – Quicken Loans CEO, Dan Gilbert, is creating a task force to eliminate Detroit’s blight.  All of it.  #opportunitydetroit
