Just 30 Minutes for Employees to Make a Difference
The gift of time is a luxury many working professionals don't have; however, employers that give staff the gift of time can make a positive difference in your community. We did some good in 30 minutes.
With the increasing dismal talk about global warming, environmental disasters and the sad state of modern politics, it's hard to figure out how one person can make a difference. I frequently wish I had more time to give back to my community in a positive way. It sometimes surprises me how startlingly different I look at the world since becoming a parent. Before kids, it was easier for me to ignore the madness in the world and carry on with life. It was just 'little ol' me' that I needed to worry. But, that's all changed since having my boys.
When I think of my kid's future, I remind myself that each of us need to do our part to try and make our community and, ultimately the world, better - even if it's just with small steps. This is why it's important to me that I work with an organization that aligns with my personal beliefs and feel fortunate that CoreHealth is one such employer!
It Takes Commitment
As an organization, CoreHealth is committed to making our world a better place so our team like to think of creative ways to give back. Most recently, we took 30-minutes of our work day to pick up garbage in our community in beautiful Kelowna, British Columbia - Read 3 Reasons CoreHealth is Headquartered in Kelowna. While it may be a small gesture, I feel proud that we did it as every little bit matters.
Just think, if every company gave 30 minutes of company time for employees to pick up garbage, our neighborhoods and communities would be cleaner. For me, that's a good thing, as I don't want to my kids to live in a world where people don't care about their surroundings. I want to instill in them that everyone can make a difference - no matter how big or small.
