Recently, Intuit® ranked #4 on Fortune magazine’s list of the 50 best workplaces for giving back. The total given was $42,000,000.
According to Fortune, employees are asked detailed questions about how proud they are of their impact on the community, the difference they feel they make, and whether their work has special meaning. Here’s what the employees had to say:
“Intuit is always giving back to the community. It believes so much in giving back that each employee is given 32 paid hours to help out local organizations. This can be used going to work in the food bank for a few hours a month, or participating in your child’s school for an hour a week or volunteering at a fundraiser you believe in. In addition, the company will match monetary contributions dollar for dollar as long as the contribution is made to a 501c3. We feel empowered to give back to the community and know Intuit supports us.”
“Everything about this company is unique in my work experience. I was always resistant to working for a big corporation, but joining Intuit was the best career decision I have ever made. I truly love it and intend to spend the rest of my working days here. People truly care about each other and our customers. … Our dedication to giving back to the community is enviable. I am personally a leader of an employee network and am given the time and support needed to effectively manage the network and plan and execute activities supporting our community. We are known in the area as a very giving organization, and that is really important to me. My friends and family get tired of hearing me talk about how awesome this company is and how much I love my job.”
Congratulations to all the other companies who made this year’s list.
