Hey Spruce Box Fans
Spruce Box is about more than just profit: we’re a team working to help our local and global community thrive. We want all our business decisions to reflect that ethos! So we’ve got an exciting new way you can join our work for a better world: it’s easy, beautiful, and effective. But first, a quick story about how our good intentions haven’t always panned out quite so smoothly.
A year ago we offered our entire workforce what we thought was an irresistible opportunity: 16 paid hours to volunteer wherever they wanted. Yep, you heard that right: choose a charitable organization, sign off the work site, do some good, and get paid for it. Who could turn that down?!
Turns out, a lot of people could: over a year, our employees only logged 5 hours of volunteer time. Definitely felt like a fail. But Spruce Box was determined to give back to the community somehow, so we regrouped and decided to seriously up the ante.
