A look at the way Veritext is fostering social responsibility as part of the company culture.
You’ve already heard about the ways Veritext is supporting the reporter community through activities like school scholarships, Project Steno, A to Z programs, and even hosting our very own reporting school, but do you know about the many other ways Veritext is banding together to give back to our communities?
For instance, did you know that Veritext has donated 58,750 meals to families fighting hunger? Or, that a group of Veritext/Philadelphia employees have raced for 18 years in a row to fund raise for the Support Center for Child Advocates? Or, that we’ve banded together to help victims of natural disasters, we annually encourage our troops with holiday cards, and we even fundraised for orphaned puppies at one of our Veritext/Atlanta holiday parties?
Being an expanding national company allows us to give back in big and meaningful ways, both in our local communities, and throughout the nation, and we are excited to continue to foster this heart for social responsibility with the launch of our new “Veritext Cares” initiative.
Veritext Cares is the umbrella name for the many ways that the Veritext family conscientiously gives back to the communities of which we are part.
Rooted in the Veritext Core Values of respect, ethics and collaboration, Veritext Cares encourages philanthropic efforts (and general loving kindness) amongst our employees, court reporters, videographers, clients, and the legal industry at large. One of the most beautiful aspects of this initiative is how it blossomed all on its own from activities cultivated over time that continue to shape the Veritext culture – so much so that practically, we had to give it a name!
We are really thrilled to be fostering this organically grown initiative through the provision of more charitable opportunities in which everyone can participate together. Upcoming projects include the development of our soon-to-be launched Green Team (a group of Veritext employees dedicated to instituting the reduction of single-use plastics such as water bottles used throughout all of our offices, and promoting goals of furthering environmental stewardship), the fundraising events in support of Project Steno, the awarding of 2019 Veritext Scholarships, most recently to Amy Siu, and the Summer of 2019 “Feeding America” campaign, where for every depo scheduled we donate a meal to the Feeding America organization!
We look forward to caring alongside you and keeping you informed about the ways you can participate in this new program.
Share Your Care!
