Corporate Citizenship During Times Of Crisis

As we continue to experience the stress and uncertainty of these challenging times, it is encouraging to see how many individuals and businesses are stepping up to help their communities. From supporting a neighbor to repurposing factories and everything in between, Americans are embracing the opportunity to give back.

It is well-known that supporting your community has many advantages for all concerned. Those receiving assistance are potentially enriched emotionally, financially, and/or physically. Those providing the help are better off as well. Philanthropy reduces stress, strengthens businesses and communities, and connects people across society – even if only virtually during the current crisis.

I am particularly proud of our Insperity employees throughout the nation. Not only are they working tirelessly to help small and medium-size businesses navigate the pandemic, but they continue to make a difference in their localities as well. Helping communities grow and prosper is a cornerstone of the way that Insperity does business. And we realize that in these times, this philosophy has never been more important.

Examples of Insperity volunteerism include

  • Making masks for first responders
  • 3d printing of face shield parts
  • Support for first responders with food and shopping
  • Delivering food parcels to food bank recipients and at-risk youth
  • Creating positive messaging for various front-line groups
  • Helping at risk neighbors
  • Financial contributions to local non-profits

The above samples are only a fraction of the different ways people are supporting others. I encourage all who read this to find a way to support their community. Even a simple thank you to your postal worker, sanitation crew or emergency responders can make a big difference. Looking for ideas? A quick online search will uncover a wealth of suggestions as to how both individuals and businesses can give back to their communities.
