A Letter From Our President and CEO, Jerry Grisko
2020 was a year that affirmed our resilience and our commitment to our clients, team members and the communities that we serve. From the impact of a global pandemic to an overdue reckoning with racial inequality, the events of the past year provided CBIZ with important opportunities to bring our mission and core values to life. Our core values form the foundation of our OneCBIZ culture and are manifested in every aspect of this, our third annual Corporate Social Responsibility report.
At CBIZ, our people matter, and this drove our efforts throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to prioritize the health and safety of our team members including a focus on mental health and wellness. 2020 also became a turning point for diversity and inclusion as we moved to accelerate these efforts towards establishing a comprehensive and long-term vision and strategy. While we are in the early stages of this journey, the learning we experienced over the last year gives us critical momentum as we seek to achieve lasting and meaningful change within CBIZ and the professional services industry.
Over the last year, our team members continued to rise to the challenge to support our clients when they needed us most. I was proud to see our team members bring that same dedication to the communities we serve at a time of urgent need. While our approach adapted, the underlying spirit of our CBIZ Cares commitment did not. Our team’s overwhelming generosity fueled our first virtual fundraising campaign to support our longtime partner, Dress for Success, and enabled us to raise the monetary equivalent of more than 1 million pounds of food during our annual food drive.
This report highlights our team’s incredible efforts over the last year and our commitment to our clients, our communities and each other. I am extremely proud to share these accomplishments that demonstrate what is possible when we rally together as OneCBIZ.
Jerome P. Grisko, Jr.
President & Chief Executive Officer
