At the core of Convergint’s thriving culture of service is the annual Convergint Social Responsibility Day. Since 2002 on the first Friday in June, Convergint closes for a full, paid workday so that colleagues may go out to serve in their communities through various service projects.
This year however, things were different. While the spread of COVID-19 remains a significant risk, there is still need in the communities around us. Instead of canceling Social Responsibility Day in the wake of the pandemic, the decision was made to extend social responsibility efforts beyond just a single-day event so that smaller groups could gather at different times to complete service projects while observing social distancing mandates and prioritizing the safety of both colleagues and community members.
Convergint’s team in Orange County recently gathered to complete a service project in their community at Dream Center—a volunteer-driven organization that finds and fills community needs in the city of Lake Elsinore, CA. The Convergint team donated their time to participate in the Dream Center’s annual City Serve event.
Watch the video below for highlights from the day, and hear what members of the Convergint team and Dream Center had to say about Convergint’s participation in this event.
One of Convergint’s core Values & Beliefs is “We believe in balanced lives—family, business, community.” The goal of Social Responsibility Day in a post-COVID-19 world is to inspire unity, boost morale for colleagues, and create a lasting impact in the surrounding communities in need, helping them rebuild for a better tomorrow.
