At MeridianLink,®, we know we are stronger together. This extends to our communities as well. Like the local banks and credit unions we serve, we know that our communities are enriched by how we serve them. That’s why we encourage every employee to seek out and participate in volunteer opportunities through our volunteer time off program. We know that when we seek to make a difference, we can. And there are always ways to make a meaningful, positive impact on people’s lives through volunteering.
Because many organizations need volunteer help during the workday, MeridianLink offers each employee volunteer time off to work with an official charity of their choice. This allows our team members to take paid time off to contribute to a group or cause they know is making a positive difference in other people’s lives. By allowing volunteers to choose how they give back to their communities in a way that’s impactful to them, we see many different charitable organizations benefit.
Earlier this year, as part of an annual team kickoff, dozens of volunteers partnered with the United Way of Orange County to craft 100 no-sew blankets for unhoused individuals and families in the area. Completed blankets were distributed at various shelters across the county for an immediate community impact. Not only was this an excellent opportunity to make a difference, but it also gave our remote team members a chance to connect face-to-face while serving the community.
Our employees in Southern CA, Atlanta, GA, and Salt Lake City, UT came together to serve their communities over the holidays. Activities included preparing fresh meals, packing and preparing care packages, and aiding in the operation of donation and sorting centers.
“It’s important for our employees to know that their workplace supports them in making a difference in their communities,” said Liz Rieveley, chief people officer at MeridianLink. “Offering dedicated time off for volunteerism matters, not only in the lives of everyone at MeridianLink, but for the countless others who benefit from the many acts of acts of service that take place throughout the year through our volunteer program.”
