Altair Global Reflects on the Generosity of Team Members in 2015
Across their seven service centers, the Altair Global team members have displayed the company’s culture of service and served their respective communities well.
Many team members participated in an adopt-a-family program, sponsored dinners for local homeless shelters and packed back-to-school backpacks for children. Some walked to end Alzheimer's disease, and some contributed thousands of pounds of food to a regional food bank.
The global headquarters, located in Plano, Texas, partnered with an organization called "Feed the Hunger" and hosted a pack-a-thon where 29,520 meals were prepared and packaged for children around the world. In the pacific region service center, located in Walnut Creek, Calif., 40 employees raced in the "mud run" for cancer.
"There have been so many successes in and out of the office, and I'm so proud to be a part of this team – a team that has a real purpose to serve," said Senior Vice President, Business Development and Marketing, Elizabeth Stewart.
One of the unique aspects of the culture at Altair Global is the internal community action program, "Altair Cares." Over the past year, this group has led the company's charitable efforts and raised nearly two thousand dollars. Altair Care's efforts support events that enhance the culture, including a chili cook off in January and a Valentine's Day bake sale.
During the winter holiday season, the company adopted 124 "Salvation Army Angels" and 15 adopted pets from the Humane Society. Additionally, team members also supported 10 soldiers via "soldier boxes," a medium to support troops overseas.
"Anyone who knows me knows I'm a storyteller, and one of the stories I'm most proud of is Altair's culture. Our people at Altair don't just talk about our culture – they live it. The generosity and service displayed year after year is a defining aspect of our company," said Chief Executive Officer, Dennis O'Gara.
