A Foundation of Service

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.

Following our Unite conference, this year’s CSRD theme is “A Foundation of Service” This theme refers to the importance of giving back as one of Convergint’s founding Values and Beliefs. Convergint’s ongoing dedication to service is foundational for us and helps drive the company’s success.

The global impact of giving back

At Convergint, our greatest strength is our people. Convergint colleagues made a substantial impact in the communities served for Social Responsibility Day 2023. This year, over 9,200 Convergint colleagues—in addition to family members and employees from partner organizations—volunteered at 200+ organizations in communities across the globe. The overall effort resulted in an estimated donation of more than $3MM in labor and equipment from Convergint colleagues, partners, and families around the world.

Our commitment to service

Convergint’s guiding Values and Beliefs have evolved since CSRD first started in 2002, 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 highlight the significance of giving back, reflecting Convergint’s core Values and Beliefs.

STEP Up for Schools 2023

With the safety of students and faculty at top of mind, Convergint greatly expanded its STEP Up for Schools initiative for this year’s Social Responsibility Day to help create safer environments for students and teachers. Serving 32 schools across the U.S, including in Denver, CO., Atlanta, GA., and Baltimore, MD, over 500 Convergint colleagues provided free security upgrades and enhancements. To date, approximately 100+ schools have now received security donations from Convergint through this program.

Through this program, Convergint colleagues and partners provide free interior and exterior security system installations, upgrades and assessments including work on cybersecurity, fire alarm services, and emergency communications. This year’s STEP Up projects featured upgrades including:

Where We Helped

In addition to initiatives that bolster school security, Convergint colleagues also volunteered at over 120 different organizations globally. From volunteering at local food banks and shelters, to assisting youth camps and organizations for children with disabilities, to participating in reforestation and environmental cleanup projects, colleagues were encouraged to work with the organizations and causes that matter most to themselves and their communities.
