Everywhere you look, there’s negative press about how corporations take advantage of their communities. However, critics may fail to realize the contributions that many corporations make by giving back to their local communities.
Indeed, some companies strive to help the neighborhoods and people that support them. Companies that give back know they exist because of their local communities. Ultimately, small and large businesses can thrive thanks to the communities that support them.
TalentZök understands the importance for everyone involved of giving back to the communities in which their employees live and work. Giving back means building strong communities and healthy businesses. Ultimately, healthy companies create more employment opportunities. Thus, TalentZök focuses on supporting its neighbors by helping people.
TalentZök is giving back to its local communities through its “Just Give a Zök” program. So, let’s check out a few of the many ways TalentZök, and its employees, Give a Zök!
Why Give a Zök?
Giving back to the community is about supporting a cause you truly believe in. At TalentZök, we truly believe in giving back to the community in every way we can. We believe in making a difference through meaningful and sustainable programs.
After all, it’s one thing to give money to charity every once in a while. But it’s an entirely different thing to give back all the time.
That’s why we Give a Zök.
Giving back to the community isn’t just about donating money to charity.
Giving back to the community isn’t about forcing employees to volunteer for causes they don’t support.
Giving back to the community isn’t about saying the right things on social media.
We believe in giving back, all the time. We’re not out looking for photo ops or pretending to care. We genuinely care about championing causes that make a difference in our community.
What Is Just Give a Zök?
Just Give a Zök is a program that gives back to the community and leaves the world better than we found it.
As a company, we have partnered with Feeding America, the country’s largest hunger-relief organization, to bring food to the needy. Feeding America reaches roughly 40 million people every year.
In 2021, a record-breaking 152,827 meals were donated! We’re delighted to see the program’s success. We know we couldn’t do it without our entire team pitching in.
Feeding the hungry is just the start!
We also encourage our team members to generously support charities. For instance, we urge our team members to support initiatives such as making purchases through Amazon’s smile.amazon.com program. Through this program, individuals can choose what charities we want to send a donation.
In addition, we ask our team members to purchase meals for heroes in uniform. It’s a small, but meaningful way to show our support and appreciation for the sacrifices they make in serving our communities.
Our team also generously donates their time and talent. Each quarter, we allow our staff time off to participate in volunteer work at the qualified charity of their choice. The Volunteer Time Off program aims to give our staff the chance to contribute directly to causes they champion.
At TalentZök, we are proud to be part of causes much bigger than us. We know that there is much more to do. That’s why we are determined to do our best to help. We understand that giving back to our community means that every little bit we do makes a difference.
How We Just Give a Zök
We figured out how we could combine our expertise with helping others to achieve our goal of leaving the world better than we found it. So, in addition to our normal support, we pledged to donate 25 meals for every job order and 500 meals for every hire to Feeding America during the holidays.
Yes, that’s right.
We encourage our employees and clients to succeed by supporting others on their behalf. We know that we can give back to our community by doing our job as best we can.
If we can be the best at what we do, we can help those who live and work around us. Our efforts lead us to make a difference; a difference we make by staffing our business partners with top-notch talent and helping those in need.
Does that sound like a game plan you can get on board with?
It certainly does to us!
That’s why our efforts aim to reach out to as many organizations as possible. Generally speaking, we partner with our clients to support charities by making a donation for every permanent and temporary worker we place.
Here are some of the charities we are currently supporting and how our TalentZök team can choose to direct contributions based on their staffing success:
Robert Ford Haitian Orphanage
For every employee placed, our team can choose to support an orphan or a student for a month including housing, food, school expenses, uniforms, etc.
Feeding San Diego
For every employee placed, our team can choose to donate up to 1,000 meals to help feed the local hungry.
Helen Woodard Animal Shelter via Chewy
For every employee placed, our team can choose to help feed a shelter dog for up to six months.
CASA of Los Angeles
For every employee placed, our team can choose to pay for volunteer advocates to receive training so that children in the foster care system can have a voice in court, at school and in the community.
Thanks to the tremendous support from our staff and clients, we can make these donations a reality. However, we can’t take the credit for helping these worthy causes. We know it takes a team effort to make a true difference in our local communities.
