Our people tell us they are pleasantly surprised at the accessibility of our leadership and that our leaders encourage innovation and entrepreneurialism. Community Leadership We encourage team members to give to the community of their time and talents. Our teams bike, walk, run, vol- unteer and donate for the cause, and we provide four hours of paid time each year to every employee to make it easy to get and stay involved. Every year, our frm and its charitable Foundation give back over $500,000, donate over 18,000 community- service and legal pro bono hours and our people hold over 250 leadership positions on the boards and committees of over 200 local nonproft organizations. We host and sponsor numerous community events, initiatives and service projects, provid- ing many opportunities for employees, colleagues and clients to interact with one another, have fun and give back. Culture and Benefts To keep things fun throughout the year, we regularly hold internal engage- ment events that promote collegiality including family gatherings, picnics, holiday celebrations, an activity-flled Staf Appreciation Week, summer ice cream and watermelon socials, and a networking breakfast every Friday.
