Corporate Citizenship—an Inherent Value
We feel fortunate as a firm that the men and women who join our team are deeply committed to the communities in which they live and work. In 2009, when we sought to evaluate and articulate our overall corporate citizenship, what we found was that we were a small company trying to make a big impact—and that impact stemmed from the self-motivation of both leadership and staff to participate meaningfully in their own communities.
“We always knew that we had many staff who volunteered regularly, but when we closely examined their efforts, we were amazed to see just how much people were doing and how many tried to contribute their professional expertise to strengthen areas of the community.“ Dave Hood, Principal
As individuals, we want to serve, and we involve ourselves in ongoing opportunities that support a range of not-for-profit organizations. Many of us participate in annual events and fundraising endeavors both at work and at home, but the majority also participate in weekly or monthly activities that help support local health, religious, educational and cultural organizations.
“The sense of fulfillment we experience through our individual experiences with philanthropy and volunteerism has helped to create a corporate culture of service that aligns with our company objectives. We teach clients how to work as a team to manage a safe, healthy environment, and our company-sponsored community initiatives have evolved with these values in mind.” Scott Aronson, Principal
Company-Sponsored Service Initiatives
As a company, we are striving to encourage a corporate culture of service as active and meaningful as our personal cultures of service.

National Multiple Sclerosis Society

Each year our staff designates team captains who organize members to fundraise for and participate in the local MS Walk. A percentage of their funds is matched by the firm to support the vision of the Society of a world free from Multiple Sclerosis. In 2009, we were pleased to be on the list of 50 Top Fundraising Businesses for the National MS Society.
Habitat for Humanity
Seeking to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action. www.habitat.org
Beginning in 2010, all three of our offices will individually support their local branches by participating in construction efforts.
A Culture of Both Safety and Service
As a firm, we work hard to ensure the safety of our community’s healthcare facilities, so that they can avoid, prepare for and/or manage the effects of disaster. We take our commitment to our clients and their communities seriously, and our consultants come prepared with both expertise and passion.
So much so that over 30% of our full-time consulting staff also serve their local fire departments in volunteer positions ranging from Fire Chief to firefighter. Another 30% serve on local, regional and national committees that affect industry policy and coding.
Our staff has real-world experience managing emergencies, and many seek out ways in which they can apply this expertise to areas that can enhance the safety of not only their communities, but communities nationwide.
In addition to our ongoing company-sponsored events, we make every effort to support the personal service passions of our staff and often do special donations to organizations that have impacted our staff or their families.
