Every part of the B Corp assessment guides us to becoming a better company but there are three primary areas we believe we can make the most impact.
RESCUE TAKES ACTION
Inspired by our team who is passionate about making an impact on so many important issues, we created the Rescue Takes Action program in February 2017. So many of our team members do community work in their spare time or donating hard-earned money to support various causes that we wanted to help. With Rescue Takes Action, the agency puts more firepower behind our team’s efforts.
Through our 2-to-1 donation match and donations made on behalf of staff awards and anniversaries, Rescue and its team members have donated over $125k to over 62 charities in the last 18 months. Every team member gets 1 paid day to volunteer with a local non-profit with the intention that shared service will help us better understand the audiences we serve, bring our team together, and spark even more community involvement outside of working hours.
