“Our firms have a strong history of giving back where our employees live and work , so we decided to make community service the focus of this Desk-free Day, “ said Mark Audino, chief marketing officer for RSM McGladrey. “Employees have told us they value giving back to the community, and the number of employees who participated in Volunteer Day proved that to be the case. Working side-by-side with clients to benefit the community was a great way to strengthen relationships while making a positive impact.”
Volunteer Day provided a great opportunity to demonstrate the firms’ new brand platform, the power of being understood℠, which is about understanding client needs and aspirations first and then bringing the right resources to bear for their success. A number of the nonprofits for which employees volunteered are clients of the firms, which provided unique opportunities to build relationships while simultaneously serving the local communities where the firms operate.
