Our core purpose, eDiscovery About People, is all about our clients, our employees and our world. DSicover Your Community provides the opportunity for our employees, whether based in Nashville or remotely, to give back to their communities. We also encourage our clients to participate, as it’s a great opportunity to partner in community service with their company representatives.
Each person can choose the charity or organization where they’d like to volunteer, and they can work individually or on teams. We want people to think outside the volunteering box, such as organizing a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a community cause.
Our employees are split into four teams, and we have a team of people overseeing and tracking the number of hours volunteered. They tally the total hours worked each week so we can have a visual way to keep track. DSi will provide a donation to the winning team’s organization of choice.
In the first quarter of 2015, we completed over 250 hours of community engagement. We’ve already observed what we hoped for – our employees experience a deep level of satisfaction when helping others. This is important and vital to overall well-being – not just as an employee, but as a person in the community. The better our employees feel about themselves, the better our company will be.
