Convergint’s 175 global offices closed on June 10th, allowing employees to focus on charitable initiatives
Colleagues at global security systems integrator and socially-minded Convergint set aside their daily tasks to donate time and resources to their communities as part of the 21st annual Convergint Social Responsibility Day. The overall effort will result in a donation of more than $2.5M in labor and equipment from Convergint colleagues, partners, and families around the world.
Convergint’s efforts in Dublin with ARC Cancer Support Centre, WRI Wildlife Hospital, Drogheda Women’s Refuge, and The Little Way Cancer Support Centre included general housekeeping, maintenance, and systems installations and upgrades. Over 60 colleagues participated in these projects, joining more than 7,700 Convergint colleagues around the world who had the opportunity to participate in charitable initiatives on June 10th.
“Giving back to our local community is what makes Convergint’s culture so special,” said Adrian Hill, General Manager, Convergint Ireland. “We have colleagues who have a close connection to the cancer support centres, whether they attended during their own treatment, or a family member was a part of the center. We’re also incredibly grateful for the opportunity to give back to the WRI Wildlife Hospital and Drogheda Women’s Refuge, and to join our global colleagues in charitable initiatives taking place all over the world.”
