I’d like to continue expanding upon the ten traits described in the Withum Way, all of which define our culture and the behaviors which best exemplify our people. Today we will cover point nine:
9. GIVE BACK. You will never see a more caring, compassionate group of professionals than what you find here at Withum. They are passionate about the missions of their charities of choice and encourage participation at every level.
For over four decades, Withum’s people have volunteered their time and talents for the benefit of the greater good. Giving back is clearly an intrinsic part of our firm’s culture. Our founders envisioned each of our offices being gateways to the community, placing considerable emphasis on supporting local charities and other entities whose mission is to serve those in need. And you all have embraced this philosophy fully.
As individuals or in teams, you are out almost every weekend, walking, bicycling, running or parading with your pets for the sake of helping others. You eagerly donate $5 every Jeans Day Friday, or have the dollars deducted from your paycheck to support the firm’s Staff Hardship Relief Fund. Withum Week of Caring is a perennial favorite with all of our team members. And finally, Withum’s partner group provides representation on over 200 not-for-profit boards and committees, choosing to be involved with those organizations whose mission means something to them on a very personal level.
Thank you for being the caring people you are! It means so much to so many.
