Team Clarity takes a purpose-driven approach to recruitment, to business at large, and to helping our communities thrive.
As one of our core values alongside *clarity* + *humanity*, here’s a spotlight on what *purpose* means to our Team.
Purpose: We care about people, and we believe all people deserve access to resources that can help them build their dream team, or become a part of one. Our purpose is to be one of these resources for as many people as possible.
To activate this value, we simply can’t sit at our desks all day! Our purpose transcends our office doors, which ultimately helps us perform our jobs better when we’re at work. We are passionate about giving our time to serve our surrounding communities so that more people can gain access to resources that fuel their success. By giving back to our community through volunteer service and coordinated giving, we are able to live out our purpose of helping as many people as possible access essential resources, and to continually promote a culture of understanding and inclusion. Beginning in 2019, we’ve made it even easier for our Team to do so by adding flexible service options as a benefit for all employees.
RaisedBy is a not-for-profit organization that enables social good through employee giving programs, volunteerism and community events ー and more. From gifting drives to service opportunities, social events and co-service days with other companies in the program, RaisedBy helps us build programming that adds to our culture and our lives. Learn more about how we have partnered with Raised By Us over the past year here.
Several times a year, Clarity hosts “Career Exploration” field trips for highschool students that are enrolled in Futures and Options right here in our NY HQ — in 2021 we have been able to do so virtually! This is part of their Career Essentials programming. Career Essentials provides career readiness training to students who have not yet reached the skill level ーor age ー to be placed in internship positions at leading businesses. Futures and Options’ engaging, interactive workshops help students learn to sharpen public speaking, time management, goal setting, and interviewing skills. In 2018 in lieu of holiday gifts, Futures and Options was the recipient of our annual holiday donation in lieu of client gifts.
By partnering with New York’s business community, Futures and Options opens doors for underserved youth to build meaningful professional careers. We also provide businesses with a trained, educated, and diverse young workforce. Learn more here.
We have also worked with New York Cares and have participated n a Team-Wide Day of Service through their organization. In addition to an annual team day of service, our NYC office has hosted a New York Cares Coat Drive, and the organization facilitated delivery of our donated coats to those in need, and sent a generous donation to New York Cares on behalf of our community + clients in lieu of physical holiday gifts.
With over 1,600 service opportunities a month, New York Cares volunteers see the needs of their communities and take action. They mentor students, serve meals in soup kitchens, clean up parks, help the homeless get back on their feet, and dozens of other selfless acts.
Other causes we have supported recently include our 2020 annual holiday donation recipient, FIRST RESPONDERS CHILDREN’S FOUNDATION, and more:
