During my first month at CareCore National, I have recognized that corporate social responsibility is alive and well here. As of March, CareCore National employees were granted two additional days of paid time off (PTO) to volunteer in the community. These two days, called “Volunteer PTO” allows employees to share their talents with the communities in which they live. By granting these paid days off, our staff members can support a charity of their choosing with their time. Recently, we held “Volunteer Day” at CareCore National’s corporate office. At Volunteer Day, local non-profit agencies were invited to a volunteer fair where they could showcase their organization and recruit volunteers. Some of the organizations represented were local non-profits, healthcare facilities, and schools where our employees and executives currently volunteer. Potential volunteers visiting the fair learned what activities they might be asked to do and how they would actually spend their day volunteering for one of these organizations.
The Volunteer PTO program is our way of demonstrating that the word “Care” in the company name has real action behind the term. This program will help us maintain our mission to demonstrate that CareCore National is invested in the communities it touches.
