By Tania Clarke | November 3rd, 2016 SafetyCulture Connect: Strengthening Our Communities SafetyCulture News | Careers Reading Time: 2 minutes Strengthening our communities through volunteer work Here at SafetyCulture, we’re driven by a strong mission: to provide a mobile-first tool that can ultimately save people’s lives. Our strong team culture is supported by the fact we care about our customers, each other and what we build on a daily basis. In the spirit of giving, we’ve established a new initiative: SafetyCulture Connect. SafetyCulture Connect is our way of giving back to the world we live in, by volunteering one paid day each year to a charity or organization. In doing so, we’re building safer, stronger communities by supporting charity and not-for-profit organizations. Volunteering Through the program, we’re demonstrating our commitment to local communities, while participating together and building team morale. Volunteering activities are aligned to the SafetyCulture mission and values. Which is focused on saving lives, and improving outcomes relating to safety and quality of life. At SafetyCulture, we’re encouraging every team member to serve his or her local community throughout the year and ensure that this volunteer effort is not a one-time-occurrence. The volunteer day is part of a larger commitment to community organizations and these modest steps are just the beginning. We look forward to continuing to work with friends and neighbors in our offices across the globe.
