During the holiday season, many people and organizations catch the holiday spirit and engage in a more generous society filled with gifts, acts of service, and a more selfless attitude. Conservice has found a way to maintain this charitable outlook throughout the whole year. In addition to vacation and personal time, the company offers another form of paid time off through the Conservice Cares program.
Their slogan states, “The Conservice Cares program is our way of contributing to the community through involvement. We hope to help make a difference in the community and support important service projects.”
If team members at Conservice meet their particular performance requirements, they are eligible to take two paid hours of work off a month to do volunteer at an organization of choice within the community. So far, Conservice employees have participated in the program 373 times in the year 2012. CEO and Conservice founder, Dave Jenkins, hasn't missed a month of participating in the program this year.
Senior Team Lead, Tanner Wade said, “I have enjoyed Conservice Cares because it gives me an opportunity to help other people. It can be difficult to find time to do community service; Conservice Cares makes it easy because it can be done during work hours. It doesn’t get better than that.”
