“By inspiring our employees and partners to work together to make the most meaningful impact in our communities and the environment, Hawes Group is paving the way to a better tomorrow.”
Community giving is central to the values and culture of the Hawes Group. Through employee volunteerism and charitable donations, we help strengthen the local communities in which our employees work and live. In fact, 71% of the employees at the Hawes Group of Companies participate in donating to The United Way.
We encourage a goal of 100 percent employee participation in a service or donation activity each year. To that end, we established the Reach Out Program, which gives each employee an opportunity to take up to 40 hours annually of paid time to volunteer with meaningful organizations that help serve individuals, families or communities in need. From harvesting for local food banks to providing microfinance consulting to small business start-ups in Eastern Europe, our people have found an impressive number of creative ways to give back to our communities and humanely promote our corporate vision of changing the world for the better.
