During the third annual McGladrey Volunteer Day held recently, more than 2,500 employees and clients from McGladrey LLP recently showcased the firm’s value of stewardship by giving back to their communities through more than 190 volunteer activities across the country.
Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO of McGladrey commented:
“McGladrey people understand the unique needs of each of the communities where our employees live and work,” he said. “We have a more than 85-year history of giving back through employee volunteerism and donations, and our sponsorship of The McGladrey Classic raises funds for Special Olympics, Boys and Girls Clubs and other not-for-profit organizations nationally. McGladrey Volunteer Day provides yet another opportunity to give back in a large-scale way, and I am pleased that so many of our partners and employees shared their time and talents with those in need.”
A number of the nonprofits for which McGladrey employees volunteered are clients of the firm, which provided unique opportunities to build relationships while simultaneously serving the local communities where the firm operates. With Hurricane Sandy making landfall the week of McGladrey Volunteer Day and leaving lasting impacts in some communities, a small number of the firm’s offices postponed volunteer activities in the interest of the safety of employees and clients, and to ensure the best service for clients who might be facing business continuity challenges as a result of the storm. Rescheduled volunteer events will provide employees with an opportunity to give back in those communities at a more appropriate time.
