CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – Giving back is a cornerstone of the culture at business process outsourcer, CBE Companies.
Giving back feels good, increases employee engagement and serves as a hallmark of a responsible corporate citizen. When you hear immediate appreciation from those who benefit, it provides another level of gratification.
Casual for a Cause, an employee-driven philanthropic mission at CBE, has demonstrated continual growth in recent years. Beneficiaries of the program, such as the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Iowa, have shared the success CBE donations have helped them achieve. In the case of Big Brothers Big Sisters, they recently thanked CBE for a $6,952 donation by noting the funding helped Little Brothers/Sisters achieve better school attendance, reduce risky behaviors and improve their grades and peer relationships.
Employees at CBE support local non-profit organizations each month through Casual for a Cause. Employees contributing to the program are allowed to wear jeans to work. In 2014, CBE employees donated more than $68,000 through Casual for a Cause. This year an expanded program is on track to raise more than $108,000 for local charities.
