Softchoice named to the 2019 List of Best Workplaces for Giving Back

April 9, 2019 – Toronto, ON – Softchoice, a leading North American provider of IT solutions and managed services, is pleased to announce it has been recognized by the Great Place to Work Institute on its first ever Best Workplaces for Giving Back list

“Taking care and giving back have always been engrained in our culture,” said Kelly Breedon, Senior Vice President of People & Growth, Softchoice. “It comes through our values and in every interaction our employees have with each other, with our customers, and with our partner community. I am always inspired by our people’s commitment and passion to making a difference.” 

The heart of Softchoice’s philanthropic efforts is Softchoice Cares – an employee-driven initiative that enables employees to volunteer and generate positive change in their local communities. Guided by the employee-led Softchoice Cares board, all employees are empowered to support charities of their choosing through: two paid volunteer days each year, fundraising programs in which Softchoice Cares matches the total donations raised, and dozens of local employee-run activities each year that raise money and awareness for worthy causes. 

“I’m very proud to be part of an organization that truly cares about making a difference,” said Luciana Pires, 2019 Softchoice Cares Co-Chair. “It is very rewarding to see our employees across North America come together through volunteering, organizing and participating in fundraising events and partnering with non-profit organizations.”

To earn a spot on the Best Workplaces for Giving Back list, organizations must be Great Place to Work Certified™ in the past year, and at least 90 percent of their employees must respond positively in their organization’s survey that they “feel good about the way their company contributes to the community.” The Great Place to Work Institute determined the best organizations based on their overall Corporate Social Responsibility Index score from employees, as well as the range and quality of programs that encourage workplace social responsibility.
