Our Community

 

CBIZ-Cares-2017_logo

We pride ourselves on being a diverse organization that builds long-lasting relationships with and provides support for the communities in which we live and work, as well as national organizations. To fulfill this commitment, we launched our CBIZ Cares Program to encourage participation in volunteering, fundraising, our National Food Drive, and our support of Dress for Success

 

Volunteering

In honor of our 20th anniversary in 2016, we wanted to give back to the communities in which we live and work. We embarked on a project we named CBIZ Cares and encouraged all of our offices to have their team members volunteer up to five paid hours at a nonprofit organization selected by that CBIZ location. CBIZ Cares was such a success that we decided to make it an annual initiative!
Being mindful of our team members’ safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, we took a different approach to our 2020 CBIZ Cares program. In lieu of our usual team volunteering, we encouraged everyone to volunteer individually or in small groups as long as safety measures were implemented.

 

Fundraising

We also support fundraising initiatives such as hosting a local charitable campaign, providing funding for a CBIZ team to participate in a walk/race benefiting a nonprofit, etc. 

Organizations supported by CBIZ offices nationwide include, but are not limited to, the following: United Way, American Heart Association, Make-A-Wish, Junior Achievement and The Humane Society. 

 

 

National Food Drive

A key element of CBIZ Cares is our annual CBIZ National Food Drive, which was established in 2009. During this two-week event each fall, we ask our team members for monetary or non-perishable food donations to provide to their local food bank.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. we held a virtual campaign through a national online platform. Our team members generously made monetary donations equivalent to more
than 1 million pounds of food.

2020 1,005,159 pounds

CBIZ Women's Advantage & Dress for Success

Through our CBIZ Women’s Advantage program, we sponsor an annual campaign to benefit Dress for Success (DFS). DFS is an international nonprofit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support. professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. 
During 2020, we had to pivot to a virtual campaign and it was our most successful to date with more than $83,000 donated to 45 DFS affiliates nationwide. Please click here for an infographic that further details our involvement with Dress for Success.

We also care about being environmentally friendly! In 2018, we renewed our commitment to our green initiatives and launched a national Green Team, comprised of volunteers from across CBIZ who are passionate about enhancing our green efforts.  Our goal is to establish practical and actionable solutions to support sustainable environments within each of our local offices. 

We value:

  • Reducing our environmental footprint
  • Efficiently using resources to reduce waste
  • Making green choices

We endeavor to do this because our team members care about working in a great place that values:

  • Restoring and protecting our environment
  • Opportunities for making green choices

The remote environment in 2020 greatly reduced our paper usage. Through a sampling of our offices, we discovered that this reduction saved approximately 34 trees and $2,300 per office!
