TEAM Software Launches Volunteer Time Off Program
TEAM Software launched a new program to encourage its employee owners to give back to the community.
The Volunteer Time Off (VTO) program was developed to provide community engagement opportunities for TEAM employee owners that are meaningful and make an impact in the community in which they live and work. TEAM believes these types of activities also enrich and inspire the lives of employee owners. The program expands on TEAM’s already successful partnership with TeamMates, a youth mentoring organization that TEAM has supported since 2013.
“TEAM strives to make a difference in the lives of our employee owners, and we’re taking this a step further with the Volunteer Time Off program. This avenue will help encourage pride and embed a strong community mindset within our culture and company,” said Judi Szatko, TEAM’s Vice President of Human Resources.
All employee owners can receive up to four days of VTO per year specifically to volunteer on behalf of the company. Recommended volunteer activities support civic-minded and 501(c)(3) nonprofit community improvement organizations such as Youth Emergency Services, YMCA or TeamMates. Other activities can include those that address health and research initiatives like fundraiser run/walk events or volunteering at a nursing home, food bank or hospital.
