Connecting Our Communities to Better Through Volunteerism

One of the core tenets driving MeridianLink® is the belief that we are Stronger Together—a belief that extends beyond our immediate workplace and into the communities in which our employees live. That’s why we encourage our team to participate in our Employee Volunteer Program enabling MeridianLink staff to take paid time off for volunteer work with an official charity of their choice. It’s an excellent chance to give back in impactful ways to the causes closest to our hearts. 

To help facilitate this initiative, MeridianLink organizes several quarterly volunteer opportunities in areas where many of our employees reside. In the past, we’ve worked with organizations including the Greater Chicago Food Depository, The Road Home (Midvale Family Resource Center) emergency shelter in Salt Lake City, and Bracken’s Kitchen food rescue, culinary training, and community feeding program in Orange County, CA, as well as United Way and other national nonprofits. 

This month alone, our Atlanta employees packed meals and other necessities for those in need through Open Hand Atlanta meal prep and delivery service, while some of our west coast team headed to Second Harvest Food Bank’s Harvest Solutions Farm in Irvine, CA, to assist in harvesting and packing roughly 6,000 lbs. of fresh broccoli! 

“MeridianLink not only supports but encourages volunteerism,” said Liz Rieveley, chief people officer at MeridianLink. “As a remote-first workplace with employees across the nation, our acts of service have the potential to impact communities from coast to coast. Seeing how far-reaching our collective efforts are is truly humbling and inspiring.” 

We’re proud to champion a culture of volunteerism within our company and our communities. Want to learn more about our quarterly service initiatives? Follow our blog to stay updated on all things MeridianLink, from loan origination solutions to the ways we’re giving back to those around us!
