This edition of Spotlight is focused on Our People, the first of our three Social Purpose pillars, which include Our Community and Our Environment. Focusing on Our People is a natural extension of our Social Purpose initiative and includes programs we deploy for our people (the FirstService Relief Fund is a great example of that) and diversity and inclusion initiatives (don’t miss Laurie Dietz’s article on this topic in this newsletter).
To ensure we are disciplined about retaining a strong focus on each of our three pillars, we have implemented committees comprised of company thought leaders who have a special interest or expertise in each area. These “Champions” are enthusiastic, engaged and collaborative, helping us map out and execute programs and initiatives that allow us to continuously evolve our Social Purpose program. We are grateful for their support and contributions.
When you share company activities in support of Our People on social media don’t forget to include our #FirstServeOthers hashtag!
