Omaha, Neb. (June 17, 2015) – The name “CWS” in Omaha usually conjures up images of America’s favorite pastime: the college world series of baseball, game-winning homeruns and ballpark hot dogs. For the past two months at CQuence Health Group, CWS took on a new meaning.
The company’s corporate citizenship program, CQuence Cares, hosted the CQuence World Series of Volunteering to encourage employees to donate their time and talents to the community.
The volunteer initiative is an annual occurrence, and this year comes on the heels of a recently announced employee benefit: volunteer time off (VTO). CQuence leadership knew its employees were passionate about giving back and wanted to provide a benefit that allows them to do so with paid time off.
“The spirit of giving at CQuence Health Group is remarkable,” said Mike Cassling, president and CEO of CQuence. “I am impressed with our company’s citizenship and thrilled we are able to encourage such behavior and offer employees this unique volunteer time off.”
Employees logged more than 180 hours of volunteer time during the CWS, with prizes awarded to those with the most time. Duane Losh, Cassling field service engineer, earned the overall prize for grossing 25 volunteer hours. Organizations that benefitted from the employees’ stewardship include the American Red Cross, Keep Omaha Beautiful, March of Dimes and Ronald McDonald House.
“Our employees have always been willing to lend a helping hand,” said Cassling. “But a little friendly competition can go a long way, and our CWS initiative is proof of that.”
To celebrate its employees’ generosity, CQuence Health Group is hosting a company outing at Werner Park ballpark in July for everyone to enjoy some baseball fun.
