As a company, we practice gratitude every Friday. Our sales team takes that concept up a notch and is grateful every morning in their daily standup. We work a block away from the beach in sunny Southern California and are lucky to work in a team-working environment. We’re grateful for so many things, that we’re driven to give back.
As the leader of our People Team, I field requests on events and activities, ideas for the office, and sometimes receive suggestions on areas of improvement for our company culture. Recently, I received an outpouring of requests to do a community outreach effort. Bitium team members -- affectionately known as Bits -- want to get involved with initiatives that connect them to our neighbors and foster our relationship to the community.
We listened to our team’s desire to give back and are proud to team up with Westside Food Bank this holiday season to feed low-income families. We started a canned food collection earlier this morning and all food donated will go to families in the Los Angeles area. If you are in the Santa Monica area, please feel free to drop in and drop off any donation items!
Regardless, whether large or small, in-person or online, in honor of someone or done anonymously, we encourage you to give back. Start today. It is #GivingTuesday after all...
