One of the things that makes ReadyTalk a Best Companies to Work For, is the company’s support and emphasis on philanthropic activities. To encourage employees to support local non-profit organizations:

  • Every employee receives 20 hours of paid volunteer hours per year to support an organization of his/her choice

  • The company matches employee donations dollar-for-dollar up to $500 annually

  • Donation of in-kind web and audio conferences to qualifying non-profits.

 

In addition, ReadyTalk has an employee-led Charitable Contributions Committee. The group’s mission is to support non-profit organizations that create a positive impact on the community, support education and the environment. The committee focuses on non-profits that are employee-supported, located on the Colorado Front Range, and provide services to financially disadvantaged populations. ReadyTalk gives the committee $10,000 per quarter to donate to organizations selected by the group.

For Q3 2010, the Charitable Contributions Committee is supporting the following organizations:

 

  • Brain Injury Association of Colorado, Pikes Peak Challenge Brain Injury Association of Colorado, Pikes Peak Challenge

It’s always a challenging decision for our group to decide which organizations to support because we want to support as many organizations as possible. I’d love to hear what organizations you support or think are worthwhile. We’re also looking for volunteer opportunities so if you have any suggestions, please share!
