At the core of Convergint’s thriving culture of service is our 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.

20 Years of Giving Back

This June, Convergint continued its tradition of giving back to local communities with the 20th annual Convergint Social Responsibility Day. What began as a small project in June 2002 has continued every year since in communities across the globe. 

Continuing this tradition and reinforcing our commitment to service and social responsibility had an extra level of challenge this year with COVID-19 restrictions still present in many communities. Colleague planned around and adapted to local guidelines and continually changing safety protocols to prioritize and ensure the safety of both colleagues and community members.

Every Colleague Makes a Difference

Despite the added obstacle of complying with local guidelines, Convergint colleagues made a substantial impact in the communities served for Social Responsibility Day 2021. This year, 3,738 Convergint colleagues—including family members and employees from partner organizations—volunteered at 93 organizations in communities across the country. Convergint offices and partners donated more than $122,500 in technology, including $52,000 for schools and $70,500+ for non-profits.

Our Commitment to Service

Convergint’s guiding Values and Beliefs have evolved along with our 20th anniversary, but they continue to guide our culture of service to customers, colleagues, and communities. Each colleague is encouraged to live by these Values and Beliefs at work, at home, and in our communities. The goal of Social Responsibility Day this year was to celebrate the 20-year commitment to service that we believe is central to our success as an organization.
