We care about our world
We are actively involved with several industry associations and are proud supporters of many local artistic, cultural and community organizations.
Each year, we commit to volunteering hundreds of hours and to donating 5 percent of our gross annual revenue. It is a line item in our budget because we consider it essential to our business.
We also are committed to environmental stewardship and green practices. We do our part to reduce waste and recycle. For 20 years, our travel has been carbon neutral. Whether on the road or in the office, we continue to make improvements to our operations and processes. Our clients share our commitment. Several are leaders in green technologies, and all realize the value of efficient practices.
