National Architecture Firms Take Day Off to Volunteer - Kansas City & 8 other offices

According to Cone Research, 79 percent of people work for a socially responsible company and 79 percent of employees think it’s important that their companies match their charitable giving. A company’s social and environmental commitments are key drivers in recruitment, retention and loyalty for today’s workforce. National architecture firm, TreanorHL, recently created a new day of giving called Love Connects. All nine TreanorHL offices across the country were given the day off on February 14th to volunteer either as a group or on their own in their local communities.

“Making people’s lives better is an integral part of why we do what we do. On February 14th, the whole company is headed out to give back and help strengthen the communities we live and work in,” said Dan Rowe, TreanorHL president. “We called this our “Love Connects” volunteer initiative. We plan to do this annually moving forward to spread goodwill, to connect with our communities, and hopefully help people who could use a little kindness,” Rowe added. TreanorHL has more than 150 employees nationwide.

Nearly three-quarters of employees (74%) say their job is more fulfilling when they are provided with opportunities to make a positive impact on social and environmental issues – and seven-in-10 (70%) would be more loyal to a company that helps them contribute to important issues, according to research.
